Hello, tradingest!

What data feeds, resolution and sessions you have for each of these data series?

tradingest,

please attach screenshots of the session settings for both of the instruments from QuoteManager: File -> New -> QuoteManager -> find your symbols in the symbol list and double-click on them -> Sessions tab.

If the instruments use exchange sessions, please send screenshots of the exchange sessions settings: File -> New -> QuoteManager -> Tools -> Exchanges and ECNs -> find your exchange from the list -> Edit -> General tab.

tradingest,

With your session settings and resolution it won’t be possible to align the bars as their bar close timestamps are different:
for @GC you have 20:00, 22:00 and so on timestamps and for EURUSD you have 19:00, 21:00 and so on.
If you’d like to align the bars of two data series, please make sure that their timestamps are the same.
