Hi all,


When i create a pending order on MT4, I am able to set the expiry date and time too which is excellent.


My question is, which time will MT4 take reference to for the time that I input for expiry? My local time or the MT4 time?


Thank you

Everything works off the server time that you are connected to i.e. "MT4 time"

Hi

So i will have to calculate my time vs the MT4 time?


Is there a way to change my MT4 charts to my local time?


Thank you

Yes.

If you know how long you want the pending order to last, you can just add that time to the server time without knowing what the local time is.

No (well, yes via offline charts but that is not a straightforward proposition)
