MC12 R6: The historical orders now take into account Daylight saving time: Please elaborate

Postby wilkinsw » 10 May 2019

Hi,

https://www.multicharts.com/traders-blo ... release-6/

Can MC elaborate on what historical orders this change impacts (backtests, OPT orders, both?).

Please give an example of the old and new behaviours.

Thanks,

Will

Hello Will,

If you use MC12 R6 to review the historical orders (that were placed during winter time) on your chart now, they are associated with the proper bars of the series. Previously, the orders were plotted incorrectly, ignoring DST.

This fix affects the OPT order history only, not backtesting.
