Market Hours MT4

If you do not require any of the new customization options and just want the classic indicator that displays the London, New York, Sydney and Tokyo sessions you may still find that for free here https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/49447

No matter which session(s) you trade or what time zone your broker is in, just attach the Market Hours indicator and get an easy to understand display of which session(s) are currently active.

No set up is necessary, as the GMT Offset is automatically determined for extreme ease of use.

Plus, scroll back through the chart to see which session your particular strategy performs best in, with no need to worry about what time each bar is. It couldn’t be any easier to visualize each session of the Forex market.

Market Hours works on any timeframe. The session bars are not displayed on H4 or higher, but the live readout of the current session is still visible in the lower right hand corner.

Now you can customize the sessions to include any times you want. Want to only know when sessions are overlapping? Want to keep track of hours of higher liquidity? Customize any and all of the sessions to display whatever sessions you want to track. You can setup up to 8 sessions on 1 chart.


  • VeritcalLines: Enable/disable the vertical lines at the start of each market session (true/false).
  • TimeEntryMode: Choose what time to input hours in (GMT, Local or Server).
  • Session#Enabled: If set to true session 1 will be displayed.
  • Session#Name: If Session#Enabled is set to true, this is the name that will be displayed for session #.
  • Session#OpenHour: If Session#Enabled is set to true, this will be the time session # opens.
  • Session#CloseHour: If Session#Enabled is set to true, this will be the time session # closes.
  • Session#Color: If Session#Enabled is set to true, this will be the color associated with session #.

Happy trading!
