Hi Sierra Support,

Just a general charting question please. I notice in Chart settings the manual ability to put start time of charts and end time of charts is there under Session times.

Just was interested to ask what are the recommended standard settings for start and end time based on what the suggested fields interpret.

For example I like to use start of day at 17:00:00 and end of day 16:59:59.

However is this best for most precise candle to candle readings or should start of day read 17:00:01 and end of day 17:00:00.

Just was a little confused so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You definitely want to use this:
17:00:00 and end of day 16:59:59.

The first time at 17:00:00 serves as the point of reference for creating the bars.
