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.
