Day bar begin and end for CME ES


What time does the day bar begin and end for ES? I’m seeing that Trading View goes to the next daily bar at 6P EST whereas SierraChart (on the CQG feed) is still on the current day.


Hello @tduong,

The market technically opens at 6 PM EST, so most platforms will have the start of the next daily bar populate at this time.

You did mention customizing time sessions in an additional post here: SC Session Start/end time for CME ES, which I believe will potentially correct the way SierraCharts is populating your bars currently.

Please keep us updated on this,
