    Exported minute data.

    I've exported a years worth of minute data for ES to do some testing. I understand that it is in UTC format but I have a couple of questions:

    1) Do I need to adjust for daylight savings? (I assume so)
    2) Would I adjust to Chicago time to get the correct RTHs? (I also assume so)

    I just want to make sure I don't act on miscalculated timestamps.

    Thanks in advance...

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    1. UTC will not adjust for daylight savings therefore you would need to factor this in when converting the data for dates during that time if the time zone you are converting to has daylight savings.

    2. Correct for ES you would adjust the data to that time CST for RTH hours to be reflected.
