What is platform time?

January 17, 2014

What time zone is the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) Platform in?

Platform time is the time that the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) charts and data is set in. All clients are set under the same platform time setting.

Our MT4 is set to GMT+2 . Midnight in this time zone coincides with the New York closing time (5pm EST).

You can change the time zone to reflect your local or desktop time zone, however, this is not recommended.

If you are interested in making these changes, there are indicators available to allow for this time zone change reflection. Please contact your client manager for more information on this.
