Session breaks

This indicator marks the start of each trading session around the world, starting with Tokyo at 0am UTC , London at 7am UTC , NY at 12pm and Sydney at 9pm, is non-intrusive (light gray vertical lines) and works with both UTC and exchanges' local time and handles DST / timezone offsets as well.

You can easily see that sometimes it acts as pivot-point especially on high volume .

And last, it is supposed to replace the "Session breaks" option that you can find in "Settings - Appearance" that only displays the end of session for the current exchange.
Release Notes: Add Frankfurt session
Release Notes: Display session breaks on lower time frames (such as 5, 15 mins) as well.

@NinetoFive_Guy, you can change the chart's timezone and see your local times instead of UTC. EU session has just started and it shows 13:45 (UTC+7) instead of 6:45 (UTC).

Hi, How can I make the lines thicker? They are hard to see!

@LegalLynx303, open indicator's settings -> Style tab and select the thickness and color for each individual session line.
Simple but great.
