  If you are using time frames higher that 1H and the brokers server are on different time zones the higher time frames will be different They break for a new 4H or 1D on midnight local server time

Can you give more precisions about the difference ?

P.S: Also please don't abuse of smilies, 1 by post seems a reasonable maximum.
