    Is there a way to get the "time" of each bar during backtest?

    Nevermind, looking at the wrong output window. I think I found it working. Thx.

    Hey Faz,

    I would just use the Time[currentbar] DataSeries. You can use Time[0].Hour, etc to get each piece of the time for whatever bar you want.

      Turns out that doesn't work when backtesting, since it uses the current system time. Does NT not retrieve/store the actual time of the bars as it builds the bars?

        Not sure what the confusion is. Just print out Time[0] for the time of the latest bar.

        Time[1] is the time of the previous bar. Time[2] is the time of the bar before that. etc.

          Yeah that worked, my bad I was looking at a printout of an old log file. Thanks a bunch.
