Default Time & Sales, origin of time stamp?

Hi,

in the Times & Sales window, I'd like to know where the time stamp that is displayed next to each trade comes from. Is this
a) an exchange-provided time stamp
b) my local PC time
c) some other time?

I am using NT 8.0.6.0 with NT Continuum datafeed. Looking at FDAX on Eurex.

Thank you,
Stefan.

Hello gurko,

Thank you for your post,

The real-time data for NinjaTrader Continuum is natively time-stamped by the data provider. The below section of our help guide lists this information for all data providers if needed.

Let us know if we may assist further.

Thank you Eric,

very useful information. Please note there may be a possible very minor issue in T&S, please see attachment. Local time was 16:40 here, I then disabled clock syncing and set my local clock to 23:40 and restarted NT8. Note the very first tick got displayed with a 23:40 time stamp, subsequent ticks were apparently using the data provider's time stamp correctly.

Kind regards,
Stefan.

Thank your your reply,

What time zones are you using when this occurs? I tested the same on my end and did not see the same so any additional information you can give that would help replicate the issue would be appreciated.

We look forward to assisting further.

My clock is set to German local time, i.e. GMT+2 (CEST).

Kind regards,
Stefan.
