Volume profiles per session

Hi everyone

I’m trialing Optimus Flow to see if it fits my trading style and I typically use volume profiles attached to Globex and RTH in any given 24hr period to see how volume is moving in the market.

I was able to create a stepped profile on a per 24hr or a set er hour/day/week basis, but there does not seem to be an option to define trading sessions in the platform and then attach volume profiles to each session.

Am I missing something or is this functionality simply not available?

My main chart layout is attached below, and as you can see the VP starts at midnight and therefore missing the first 30min of RTH trading (in my timezone). How can I specify a custom trading hours sessions or even better, divide the chart into Globex and RTH sections?

Thanks in advance.
Mike

Hello @mikesz,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community forum!

We do have the ability to create custom sessions on Optimus Flow and hope to make this even easier down the line when separating the Globex, Overnight Session and RTH.

As of right now, when you have a chart open (any chart or TPO will work), right click the chart > Settings

Once open, click on the View tab and then navigate to the Custom Sessions section and click on the + as shown in the image below:

After you click on the + you will have the ability to configure and enter custom session times as shown below.

The times entered here will allow you to separate and specify custom trading hours and sessions on your chart. You can essentially create these custom sessions for any hours or markets you like.

Does this help what you were looking for? Please let us know!

Thanks,
Jake
