MT4 Times
« on: May 02, 2009, 08:17:29 PM »
Please explain the various times on the platform. The experts tab, the mailbox tab, the journal tab, the trade tab, the account history tab, market time and the time bar at the bottom of the chart.
Relate these to GMT please. This will certainly help me to understand when things happen.

Well they should all be synchronised together and showing the same times. The actual time will vary from broker to broker but you can compare what their time is against GMT time by looking at the GMT website here: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.co.uk/
Alpari UK for instance is 2 hours ahead of GMT time, so all times shown are GMT +2

I'm not sure if you are in the UK, but if you are, not that the UK is NOT on GMT time right now due to daylight savings... this has confused a lot of people in the UK recently.
