Pro real time and Time Zones

Question

Guest Daphne

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.

Timezone integration with IG does not work. For example, if you set out not to execute before 10am on a Monday, it will still execute at 9am on a Monday.

    • Flowless rally - APAC brief 18 Mar
      A flowless rally: It’s being dubbed the “flowless rally”. Equities are ticking higher, but without the fundamental buying-support one might assume. This is especially so when considering the milestone achieved on Wall Street on Friday. Finally, the 2815 resistance level has tumbled, and the bulls have cautiously, quietly rejoiced. There are yellow flags popping up here and there, however, and that is making participants wary. It goes back to this “flowless rally” business: the latest leg of global stocks big recovery isn’t being supported by investor flows. In fact, investor flows look to have diminished somewhat. The reasoning behind this move is somewhat speculative. The impact of share buybacks is one popular argument. Whatever the cause, confidence isn’t accompanying this rally.


      Economic conditions deteriorating: Maybe market participants are still scorned from the market correction in 2018. A bitterness and cynicism stemming from that is understandable. Much of the frustration comes, it would seem, from a widespread recognition that this rally has come in the absence of solid fundamentals. On the contrary, if looking at the macro-outlook, there are more reasons to be bearish than bullish right now. Global growth is (almost) irrefutably slowing, and some of the geopolitical sore-points dictating sentiment, like Brexit and the US-China trade war, are showing little new signs of progress. A major factor keeping this rally alive in riskier assets, perhaps concerningly, is a little case of “fear of missing out”.
