Why does my MT4 blackout every day at 0:00?

January 25, 2014

How come there’s a blackout on MT4 at 0:00 every day?

The platform time of 0:00 on the Vantage FX Metatrader 4 (MT4) is equivalent to 17:00, New York time. Across the global Forex markets, this is considered the ‘End of trading Day’ or ‘End of FX day’. There will generally be a five (5) minute blackout period, also referred to as the ‘roll-over’.
