BitMEX daily/open close variance

Hello,

I noticed that the sierra chart daily open/close values for XBTUSD are different than on the BitMEX itself.

The proper open should be at 20:00 and close at 19:59.

I was able to correct this issue by using intraday data only and changing the chart session time: https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SessionTimes.php#CreatingDailyBarsCustomSessionTimes

There is however still one very minor issue. The opening time for 2019-06-14 is 1 tick off.

I confirmed this by examining the open of the 20:00:00 1 min bar, and comparing it to the same bar at the BitMEX.

There was a 1 tick discrepancy, with the BitMEX showing an open of 8695.00 and Sierra Chart 8695.50.

How do you change the weekly open for XBTUSD to Monday instead of Sunday?

Thx
