can you ever wonder, why many instances this price out on your chart suddently turns on a position you can`t describe?
A position, where apparently no support or resistance level, or a pivot point, or a fibonacci level is to identify?
Session opening prices, where market makers let price return, to draw in the opposite participants, into the direction of their goal.
This is one of the methods, market makers use, to give a “discount” to reach the price levels they want.
The best trading advice: “Do not fight against the market makers, just follow them” comes even more into play, if you use “TPA True Price Action” indicator combined
with “TPA Sessions” indicator.
If price is moving towards a session opening price, you get a “heads up “alert by the indicator, where you can set up, how many pips distance to the level, the alert will trigger.
If the price now “bounced off” the session opening price, you got “TPA True Price Action” indicator to follow the market makers back into the other direction, or through the level of the session opening price.
The indicator shows session opening levels as a horizontal line. You can track up to 5 sessions simultaneously: Tokyo session, Frankfurt session, London session, New York session and Sydney session.
Each of them can be hidden or displayed.
The session start time is given in the GMT zone and adjusted to the broker time. If necessary, you can always set this time for each session separately in the “Start Time (GMT)” parameter.
Since ver. 1.1 of TPA Sessions it is possible to draw lines also at closed market. It is needed to run indicator at least once in the open market to read offset between GMT and your broker’s time before you use it over the weekend.
To make sure, you got the correct session opening times, please go to forexfactory webpage and click on the clock (upper right) and match your time or your brokers, by choosing the right timezone and DST = Daylight Saving Time.
Then click “save settings”. Then click on “Market” tab, scroll down a bit and you can see all informations about the sessions.
Now you are able to sync those with the settings of TPA Sessions, or simply check, if the automatic function is correct.
Than you can adjust TPA sessions hours in TPA Settings by changing param “Start Time (GMT)”.
Remember that your chart time is based on your broker’s time not your local time or GMT.
