    Don't worry, I don't intend to flood the place with redundant indicators! ...but >:D I do have a couple to share here.

    You may already have these or similar tools that do the same things. These may prove more flexible or easier to set up for the way you choose to use them so I offer them just in case they may prove useful.

    The first is a simple KillZones indicator. The settings are straightforward. The following sample chart illustrates both the CDR indicator and the KillZones indicator. Note that unlike ICT I still differentiate between the Frankfurt and London opens but this simply demonstrates the flexibility available.

    The second is a simple vertical lines indicator set to show session opens and the London close. You can, of course, set any times you like and can restyle the lines to your taste. The following sample chart shows the CDR indicator (as empty or unfilled boxes), the KillZones indicator and the SessionOpenLines indicator.

    Finally, I am including a handy little utility that has been updated for MT4 build 600+ called InputResizer. It allows you to automatically resize input boxes to make the task of adjusting settings a tad easier. The following illustrates what I mean.

    If you are not familiar with the InputResizer tool I suggest you read about it here:

    The more tools the merrier, I say. At least in the toolbox.

    Thanks Doc!

    SessionKillZones - Updated to TargetZonesHiLo

    Moving away from "Killing" - the term feels inappropriate. Be "on target" and I wish you trading success.

    This updated version uses High and Low lines, that users can style, instead of rectangles. Up to 5 target zones can still be identified by user input.

    Hi Auss Doc

    I have inserted your indicators in my mt4 platform but nothing happens I have downloaded then copied and pasted in the mt4 data folder indicators they appear in my custom list and from the properties box indicators I can see that they are on the chart but nothing shows any ideas.

    Thanks
