Indicator shows a different Forex sessions, market hours of the exchanges and user defined time lines.

It's a very useful tool for manual and automatic trading.

To perform a correct winter/summer time change, check the following parameters:

Broker_standard_time_zone - time zone, standard UTC+ broker server shift. The default value +1 - EST (Eastern Standard Time).
Broker_DST_start - Broker server's date and time for the summer time change.
Broker_DST_end - Broker server's date and time for the winter time (standard) change.
