Closing all open orders at Friday noon time.

 

Hi;

I have conundrum: I travel a lot and am constantly in different time zones: US, Australia, Europe, Africa, etc. 

How can I get my EA to auto close all open orders at Friday noon (12pm) regardless of where I am in the world?

Do I need to include a time zone conversion module in my EA for every possible time zone to make that happen?


Any suggestions highly appreciated.


Thank you

Hi Alain 

Your name -- same country as me?  sounds like it.

Anyway, thanks for the response.

How will that work?  Prime example: right now it is Friday 3/31/2023 7:46AM where I am.  Broker's time is already Friday 3/31/2023 17:46PM.  

According to broker's time markets are already closed but that's not the case.  So I am a bit stumped understanding this.

Anyway, I do appreciate your feedback and will check it out.

The markets are not closed yet.  It's currently 16:36 GMT, and the markets are closed at 21:00 GMT.

So if you want to close at Friday noon (but noon of which timezone ?), you just need to convert it to your broker time. Your broker appears to be at GMT+3 (or GMT+2 with DST :-D).

 

Got it.  Thanks for the guidance.
