//|                                         Copyright � 2006, sx ted |
//| Purpose: shade New York or other sessions for chart time frames  |
//|          M1 to H4 (at a push).                                   |
//| Notes..: To change chart time frame from M5 to M15 for example,  |
//|          click on M15, M5 and M15 again to force a chart refresh.|
//|          Modify the values of MAX_DAYS_TO_SHADE, SESSION_OPEN_HH,|
//|          SESSION_OPEN_MM, SESSION_CLOSE_HH and SESSION_CLOSE_MM  |
//|          to suit ***** THE LOCAL TIMES AT THE EXCHANGE *****.    |
//|          The values for SERVER_TIME_ZONE and EXCHANGE_TIME_ZONE  |
//|          are to be edited for DST when applicable.               |
//| version: 2 - enhanced for speed but with MT4 beeing so fast no   |
//|              difference will be noticed, all the sessions are    |
//|              shaded in the init(), last session if it is current |
//|              is widened in the start() in lieu of repainting all.|
//|          3 - 2006.03.22 added "SetImmediacyON" input parameter   |
//|              which forces shading after first tick is received   |
//|              in the new session. Corrected case where bar is not |
//|              complete and session starts, and case when session  |
//|              covers two days when in Moscow (GMT+3 and greater). |
//|          4 - 2006.03.29 corrected for not taking into account the|
//|              difference between Local time and Server time.      |
//|          5 - 2006.04.03 corrected for Server time change, open   |
//|              and close times of exchange are now expressed in    |
//|              local times of the exchange.                        |
//|              Added new SERVER_TIME_ZONE and EXCHANGE_TIME_ZONE in|
//|              the #define section. Finally learnt about GMT time! |
