    Candles' Time

    Hello,

    1. I know when using crosshair NT8 will show 'actual time + current time frame value' as candle's time (close time in other words). But for me it's yet +1 hour. So it shows 16:00, and I need to see 15:00. Changing time zone in Trading Hours for chosen template doesn't help. How can I change it?


    2. When moving crosshair along the candle, NT8 shows minutes. How can I fix the time shown to be only the close time of a candle?

    Hello Botan626,

    Thank you for the post.

    For #1, What time frame, instrument are you using on this chart?

    You may also need to adjust your time zone settings in Tools>Options>General. If all of your charts behave in this way, it would mean that the time zone setting is affecting the time display.

    For #2, If you use a minute chart, that will display minute by minute. All higher time frame charts will display the close time of the bar.

    I look forward to assisting further.

      This helped, thanks!

      Moving crosshair along the candle gives minutes in the time stamps. The close time for that candle showed in the screenshot is 21:30 though.

        Hello Botan626,

        Thank you for the follow up.

        Please right click your chart and go to the Properties. Once there, make sure that "Equidistant bar spacing" is enabled.

        Please let me know if this does not resolve your inquiry.

          To be honest, I'd like "Equidistant bar spacing" to be disabled, because when enabled, the distance between bars is not equal when 2 data series are added to a chart.

          Compare 2 EURUSD M20 charts with each other.

          I want the distance between bars to be equal.

            Hello Botan626,

            Thank you for the reply.

            I will need to submit a feature request to add the ability to partition the time stamps even with Equidistant bar spacing disabled.

            I'll update this forum thread with the feature tracking ID once it is ready.

            Thanks in advance for your patience.

              Thanks, Chris.

              Will be interesting to see if this feature will be in fact implemented.
