To import an indicator into TS 6 you use the "File:Import/Export EasyLanguage" menu item. It brings up a dialog where you select the file you want to import, then it looks in the file and gives a list of the items in the file. You then choose which ones you want to import. That is pretty much it for getting the indicator in. Now how to use each

The 123TIME.eld file has the timezone indicator called "123 TimeZones"

This one is pretty simple. There is just one input variable called "isGlobex". You set this to true if you are using 24 hour charts, otherwise set it to false for day session only charts. It will automatically pick up your timezone (CST, EST, PST) and do the right thing. You can change the appearance of the timezone plots by using the style tab in the "Format Indicator" dialog.

The Pivot calculator is a little more complex. The file contains an indicator called "Floor Pivot Numbers".

There are a number of inputs on this one. The important thing is it mut be applied to the data in subgraph one and displayed in subgraph one. TS 6 users should know what this means. This indicator is better than using a generic custom indicator because it uses trendlines to do the plots. If you use a generic indicator it will have to draw all S/R lines on the screen at all times. This will cause your data bars to be squished down very small and unreadable. By using trendlines they do not need to be visible until price action approaches them. So your charts look normal and the bars appear as you get to them. The inputs are as follows:

PivotColor: Color to draw the pivot line in
SupportColor: Color to draw the support lines in
ResistColor: Color to draw the resistance lines in
ShowSR: True if you want it to draw support and resistance lines as well as the pivot line
LineStyle: Style of lines for these lines (default is a dashed line)
DoPrintLog: If True the indicator will print the pivot, S/r numbers as well as H,L,C in the EasyLanguage output bar which can be accessed from the View menu

useInputData: Normally, the calculator will automatically pick up the H,L,C data from the previous day to calculate it's pivots. When trading the ES these numbers will be based on the ES H,L,C of the previous day. Most people would rather use the CME settlement prices. This variable allows you to input your own H,L,C numbers below. If this is used the pivots etc will be the same for all days charted, they are only valid for the current day. If you use the default (set to FALSE) then each day will have the correct pivot numbers corresponding to that day.

inpHigh: Manual input for High (only used if useInputData is TRUE)
inpLow: Manual input for Low
inpClose: Manual input for Close
