Server Time to GMT +2

Tuesday 29th of October 2013

On Sunday the 3rd of November 2013, the Pepperstone MT4 Server time will move one hour backwards to GMT +2 hours.

This is to reflect the US Daylight Saving Time change in New York, taking place on the 3rd of November 2013.

Pepperstone bases MT4 Server time on "5pm New York", the internationally recognised end-of-day in the forex markets. With the US turning clocks one hour backwards, the Pepperstone MT4 Server Time will also move one hour backwards.

How does this effect me?
The only noticeable change that you will experience is that the Market Watch time in Metatrader 4 will now be set at GMT+2. This might not effect your trading at all - however, depending on your timezone, this may cause the market to open one hour later on Monday. The MT4 server time will still open at 0:00 on the charts, this may just be an hour later for your time-zone.

GMT Offset
If you are using an EA with a GMT offset time, then you must change the GMT offset to +2 just prior to the 3rd of November.

Server Time GMT +3 Hours
GMT Offset +3
NEW SERVER TIME - 3rd of November
Server Time GMT +2 Hours
GMT Offset +2
