It does not take QM sessions time if the chart is set to show 24 hrs., even if QM sessions are RTH
That is the issue I am trying to bring attention to.
Even if I am looking at a 24hrs chart of YM, the end of the session is still 16:15 EST, not 00:00 EST

Hello there, MC does not display the daily bar on forex symbols starting Sundays 17:15 ending Monday 17:00 EST. My assumption is the way IB time stamps these weekend bars as show in their TWS charts.

I found the cause of the signals disappearing from the chart. The signal was not compiled at the time the charts where open. In my opinion this is a bug/mistake.
