Market Open Hours Indicator Review

The Market Open Hours Indicator can be found within the indicators section of the marketplace on the MQL5 website. We have provided a link to it just in case there are others with similar names. The indicator was uploaded by Kok Jye Yen on the 4th of July 2016, it has had a few updates, the most recent update was on the 11th of June 2018 and that brought the indicator up to version 1.3.


The Market Open Hours is an indicator for the MetaTrader 43 trading platform, the purpose of the indicator is to show you the times where the markets open, change, and close. This will allow you to know when the liquidity in the markets might change, such as a time when the markets switch over, the indicator works with the M1, M5, M15, M30, and H1 charts and can give up to a 2-week time span.


Some of the main features of this indicator:

-Changeable market name; up to 7 market names with their respective time zone and color settings.

-Changeable open and close market hours for each market name. Default settings – open: 08:00, close: 17:00.

-TimeLine (option to turn On/Off).

-Event Label (text indicating opening/closing on the timeline for the respective market, with the option to turn On/Off).

-Changeable market place name, time zone, and color.

-Dynamic Time Zone handling; meaning whichever time zone your server maybe, this indicator manages it dynamically. Hence, the indication of market opening hours is always correct.

-Dynamically handles daylight saving according to your PC settings.

-Time Bar and Event Label adjust dynamically with each change of the chart, giving the trader a sense of order.

There are also a number of parameters that can be altered, these include things like the market, time zones, time to open and close bar colors, to display bars, lines and labels, local time zone, number of weeks to display, and line and text color.
