Daily chart time is not in server time
Hi, I have set the setting of "view format of time fields" to server for my trading station, so i expected to see charts in all time frame to be in server time. However I find out that the daily chart is not. For example, my trading station is showing the server time as 20:24, and my m5, H1 and H4 all have last bar formed at 13/04/2010 20:24, but the daily chart's last bar is formed at 14/04/2010. My local date is 14/04/2010. It seems like the daily chart is following my local time format but the others are following server format.
Is this normal? How can I change the daily chart time format into server format?
The trading begins at 5pm New York time so until it reaches 5pm New York time of any given day, the most recent daily bar on the chart will be for 5pm New York time of the previous day, that is why if you looked on the chart at 8:15am New York time on April 14, the most recent daily bar on the chart would start at 5pm New York time on April 13
