On Monday the greenback edged higher versus rivals, after the release of positive U.S. economic reports on personal spending and income and as investors eyed upcoming data on U.S. pending home sales.

Even if it's possible it would result in a large gap in the chart (between those hours), since the time axis is fixed (only scaling can be changed). I am guessing u don't want that...

Option one is to use offline charts and remove the periods. Search for Constant Range Bars and Renko Charts.

Option two is to simply draw a rectangle over the area
