This is time of the broker (broker's server). So, we are living according to our local time, looking at the forex news event according to GMT+0 time? and trading according to the broker time. :)

But as we can see the news events on the chart according to the chart time (broker time), and we are trading using chart time too so we do not need our local time at all :
