The parameter GMT_Offset is to adjust the GMT time to Server time of your broker. Since there are different brokers from around the world in different time zones, the Server time vary widely.

GMT_Offset = Server time - GMT time.

GMT_Offset is also used to calculate the correct news time in News Filter. If a big news occurs at 1:00 GMT time, and the GMT_Offset of the broker is 3, then it will occur at 4:00 server time. So GMT_Offset must be correctly calculated to activate the News Filter.

If Auto_GMT_Offset is set to be true, the EA will acquire the Server time and GMT time, calculate GMT_Offset automatically, you don't need do anything. But in some cases, the calculation may be incorrect. To make sure, you can check the GMT time online and calculate by yourself.

For example:

In this case, Server time is 3:13, GMT time is 00:13, so GMT_Offset is 3.

If the EA's calculation is wrong, you can set the Auto_GMT_Offset false, and set the GMT_Offset 3.

Or you can download the time synchronization tool, start it and restart the EA with default setting.

GMT_Offset 参数是用来调整GMT时间和经纪商的服务器时间。因为不同的经纪商处于全世界不同的时区,所以服务器时间也不一样。

GMT_Offset = 服务器时间 - GMT时间。
