Post From: bar time on SC, how does SC builds its bars?

new user to SC, since thursday night when I downloaded the program for testing... I cant find a clear answer to this in everything that I've read... so I figure I ask here... off the bat, I subscribe to the ACD method of trading.. so having a properly defined OR, PVR, and RPVR is important to me...

I setup my day session to start at 9:30:00 and end at 16:15:00, night session starts at 16:15:01 and ends at 9:29:59 ....

when I setup my pivots, ohlc, etc... I noticed that everything is off with time.. assuming I use 20m OR, and 20M bars... the Close of the 9:50 bar and not the 9:30 bar is being used to determine the high/low of the OR...

does SC bars get build with the start time? meaning... the 9:30 20min bar begins at 09:30:00 and ends at 09:49:59? with 9:50 being the second bar of the day? curious because my other two platforms dont build the bars that way... the 20min bar with a session starting at 9:30 is the 9:50 bar...

see attached for what I mean...

so I guess my question is, how does SC build its bars?
