Is there a Ninjascript function which returns the opening time for a symbol?

For example, GC (Gold Futures opens at 5:20a PST) and ES (eMini Futures opens at 6:30am PST).  Is there a function which can return the opening range time, when the instrument is passed as a parameter?

    You might want to look into Trading Hours.

    Yes, so I found Trading Hours here with a coding example:

    ninjatrader.com

    However, I'm seeking Globex Hours vs. Trading Hours.

    Any thoughts on where I might obtain that?

    I haven't found anything except the possible option of opening a separate data feed to the same instrument in RTH and collecting the 'starting hours' from that point.  I'll have to try it out, if that's even possible.
