Regular Trading Hours data under normal circumstances is very difficult to create. Portara allows you to customise your session times so that you are in full control of your historical RTH data.
You can chop away the morning, evening and night sessions and create custom daily data. The daily OHLC bars are now based upon the intraday database.
You can change the open and close session times to whatever you want. You can also create overnight daily bars, or intraday.
