I have "regular session only" unchecked for IQ feed. There is an active strategy in strategy monitor, and the log pane shows "NextRun set to 7/20/2021 7:00 AM". For my 30-min bars I would have expected an earlier next run if pre-market bars were being traded.

That's because of the default market hours defined for U.S. market. These settings can be overridden by creating a new market and specifying its symbols (wildcards are supported) in Markets & Symbols in Tools menu.

Ok, thanks. I just created a pre-market and an after-market. I don't see where to specify symbols, other than the benchmark symbol. Are you saying I have to specify the symbols to trade pre-market and after-market ?

The backtesting is not picking up these new markets. Will not know until later today whether the live strategy will.

Is there further configuration needed ?

To add symbols to a custom Market you should switch to the Symbols tab of the Markets & Symbols tool. On how to use wildcards please refer to the Help while in the tool (simply press F1 and it will take you to the right section). After you set this up, choose the new market in e.g. Strategy Monitor and WL will pick up the symbols.
