Wrong time zone? How do i change the Time Zone on charts?


Guest CasG

Question

Hello,

I started using this platform today, but one thing confuses me. The displayed time axis under every chart shows a time zone I do not recognize. For example, the US market opens at 9:30 AM and closes at 4:00 PM, which is 15:30 and 22:00 here in the Netherlands. The charts display none of these zones though, they even close in the future (for me). 22:00 for me is 07:00 (the next day) on my charts... It's pretty confusing.

Has anyone encountered this and if so, does anyone know how to fix this/get the platform to display my own time? (UTC +1)

Thanks in advance

Hi @CasG, all platforms use the brokers time as they are providing the feed, very few platforms have the function to adjust it such as the Prorealtime platform.

Because IG are not restricted to exchanges to gather prices they are able to provide a 24 hour market from Sunday evening to Friday evening though spreads will change for the out of hours market.

So the charts run on a 24 hour time frame through the week and don't close for most assets classes unless it's a specific stock traded on a specific exchange where you will get a 'market closed' message.

Not sure what you meaning by;

"The charts display none of these zones though, they even close in the future (for me). 22:00 for me is 07:00 (the next day) on my charts... It's pretty confusing."

Are you referring to the Friday evening IG shut down of all charts?

Hi @Caseynotes, thank you for your reply. It does clear things up a bit. I had hoped I could change the platform's time zone somehow (like in ProRealTime), but it seems I just have to adjust my own thinking! :P

I tried to explain the shift in time zones, but I think I failed. I did a bit of calculation myself (because I can't find ANY information on the IG website anywhere or previous threads describing this) but the IG time seems to be the AEST (UTC +10) zone. I guess this is obvious to people already here, but for me it was a bit confusing. 

Thank you for your help!

Ok @CasG,  that means you have opened an IG Australian account from the Netherlands

I have no clue why or how this happened... It's very frustrating that that wasn't made clear to me at the account creation process, seeing as I filled in my nationality as Dutch and not seeing any reference to the Australian-based website... 

I've emailed the Dutch helpdesk to see if they can help me with this. Thank you though

Hi @CasG thanks for letting us know on this one. I've spoken to our sales ops manager and he's investigating. I'll let you know as soon as we have a resolution / answer.

Hi @JamesIG, I received a call from a Dutch Sales Executive this afternoon. I can fill in a registration form with him and email it to him, after which he'll take care of it. Thank you for your help, both of you :) I'm very excited to start!

    • MON Protocol aims to be a leading developer and publisher of blockchain-native IPs and games. Their vision extends beyond traditional gaming ecosystems, as they seek to bring games and gaming characters onto the blockchain. MON is an ERC-20 fungible token that powers and governs fractionalized IP ecosystems.   30% of the total supply is allocated for community claims, emphasizing community-driven initiatives. While 29% of the total token supply is dedicated to fostering growth and sustainability within both the Pixelmon and MON Protocol communities. All one billion tokens will be fully unlocked within 48 months of the token generation event (TGE), which is anticipated to take place in Q1 2024. This gradual release underscores MON Protocol's commitment to transparency and ecosystem development. Will MON Protocol's unique approach to IP governance, combined with Bitget's strategic listing, positions it as a frontrunner in fostering community engagement and sustainable ecosystem growth?
    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
