    Date/Time for bars

    What time is the Time[0] value? Is it the exchange time or the local computer's clock? My guess is it's the local time.

    I would like to have two random computers always in sync as far as bar date/time. Or is that impossible since each copy of NT that's running will have a different Time[0] for its bars even if both charts are set up the exact same?


    Thanks!

    It's tied to the local set PC clock, you can also use DateTime.Now

    If you sync both clocks regularly and use the same feed, it should be pretty close.

      For clarification, it is converted to local time however, it may or may not be the time stamp from the data source.

      Off the top of my head,

      eSignal
      Zen-Fire
      Barchart
      DTNiQ

      Provide time stamps thus, we don't locally time stamp it, just convert it. You would need to check with those providers where their time stamp comes from.

        OK, thanks Ray. Still working on some custom indicators to help sell your software! :-)
