Pro real time and Time Zones


Guest Daphne

Question

I've read the questions regarding setting time zones and how we are directed to change them in ProReal Time.  Could you provide a walk-through as to how to do that please? I'm in the UK but want to set my charts to NY close as I like to trade the 4-hour and am looking for bars to have a 10pm close in UK time, not midnight.
This is what I have tried so far:   gone to 'Custom Trading Hours', selected 'Use a custom time zone' and then selected UTC-05:00 America/New York Eastern Standard Time.  I also leave 'Use trading hours of this market...' selected.
Then I close and re-open the platform but the 4-hour candles changed to 3pm, not 2pm, showing a 6-hour time difference, not 5.  Where am I going wrong?
Thanks in advance.

    • @Courage Thanks for that input, I am following this one. Being a newbie what news days and countries are best to look out for and what days are the big mover news days. Thanks
    • Spot on. The FX market is “influenced by policy makers through the purchase or sales of bonds  “ their mandate is to keep the confidence in their respective economies as high as possible.   That confidence is what the Fiat monetary system is based on, the moment that goes the system evaporates. If you recall a few years ago during Theresa Mays government, the key phrase was strong and stable? . That's their mandate. They can't let a currency move too far towards one extreme or the other.     So if you wana make money on fx you need to extend your time horizon or take the other position when things go too far into one extreme. I am only 32 but remember I  the dollar decline and the dollar inflation story that has been around for along time now. It's the same old story once you realise it's the new cycle, you learn to side step it and focus on what's important and that's the economy. Economic strength expresses itself in currency strength. Focus on that and you will get the big moces right.
