Why did the MB TRADE MT4 Daily candle start at 6 PM EST???

Postby PINKPANTHER5 » Sun Nov 01, 2009 11:40 pm

I am confused. I live in Toronto where the time is EST. Today on Sunday the Daily candle started at 6 PM EST. Isn't it supposed to start at 12:00 PM EST?

Or is this because its a Sunday, that it started at this time.

Are you trading a demo or a live account? Who is your broker?

A couple years ago when I was trading a live account with FXCM it started at 5pm EST. Now I am trading a FXCM demo and I believe it starts ticking at 6pm EST.

The simplest thing to do is to call you broker and ask them what time the live and demo data streams begin trading in your time zone relative to GMT.

I hope this helps a little bit.

Its MB TRADE that is my broker, and its a DEMO.

I figured most people use MB Trade here for their entries.

Thanks for your fast reply. I am working on a project with the BuyZone and will soon be opening my live account with MBT as well.

Please post what you find out about account open times for live and demo accounts.
