ICT Session Opening FVG / Silver Bullet [MK]

malk1903 Updated   
Students of ICT concepts will know that the first FVG found within particular session periods can identify an important price level for intraday traders.

"Find the first FVG at the start of the session and drag a box from it to the right"....ICT

The script finds the first FVG (either bull or bear) within the following periods:

London Killzone (0200 - 0500) EST
02:00 - 0259
03:00 - 0359
0400 - 0459

Dead Zone (05-00 - 0600) EST
05-00 - 0559
0600 - 0659

NY AM Killzone (0700 - 1100) EST
0700 - 0759
0830 - 0929
0929 - 0959
1000 - 1100 (Silver Bullet)

A chart higher timeframe can be chosen to detect the FVGs and they will be displayed on lower timeframe. Default is 5min for detection. I like to then following price reacting to 5mi FVGs on a 1 min chart.
FVG boxes can be extended to the end of the session, or to any time within the current days trading hours. Colors/Labels/ Session Periods can all be edited. A maximum timeframe for display is available and
timezone can be adjusted.

FVGs are only shown for the current days trading hours.

Added NY PM Silver Bullet 1400 -1500
Release Notes:
Script re-write to enable the script to work in 'Replay Mode' and shows FVGs from previous days so it can be used for backtesting.
