I check time of some broker : The first bar of day in M1 is 0:00 and the last is 23:59.

Do the time shown in MT4 are the same with other broker?

Not necessarily, it depends whether the broker has a Sunday bar or not.

Various brokers have various offsets to GMT, so although a bar with one broker may have one value, the same bar time with another broker may be different.

The market opens Sunday 6pm ET and closes Friday 4pm ET.

Brokers using GMT have a Sunday 2100 or 2200 opening bar (M1-H1) and last bar is Friday 19:59 or 20:59 (My broker also has a one tick 21:00)

Brokers using GMT+2 have no Sunday bar.

Brokers using GMT+n (like Singapore) have a less than 24 hour Monday and a short Saturday.

Thank you very much, very helpful.
