Forexite Data GMT?

#1 Postby dema » Fri Apr 19, 2013 10:04 pm

Hello,

I've imported the Forexite data into FT2, left the GMT offset at 0, and exported all minutes into Excel for analysis (EURUSD).

Using the EST (New York) DST adjustments on what I understand is GMT (+0) data, the last minute is at 1600 on Fridays, an hour earlier than expected. So it seems that either:
1. The last hour of the New York session on Friday is excluded.
2. The Forexite data is not GMT (+0) throughout the year.
3. Others?

Furthermore, the changes in the close/open times appear to coincide with the BST (London) DST dates.

Data extract:

Code: Select all

Hello,

Forexite data on our server are stored with GMT timestamps but Forexite broker works in GMT+1 timezone so that is the reason why trading week is ended 1 hour earlier.
