Description

I'd like to have an option during import data in ASCII format which permits me to select a custom time zone and not only "Local" or "GMT" or "exchange".
I ask this option because sometimes there are some datafeeds which permit exporting data in ascii format, but without defining a specific time zone or time setting. 
Usually GMT differs from UTC during the year or sometimes, data are avaliable at different time settings then GMT, or Exchange or Local, so I can't import that kind of data because they will modify all my database if imported.
It would be very nice if I could choose to import ASCII data even if they are different from GMT or Local or Exchange (for example UTC which is now different from GMT) simply adding or subtracting 1 or more hours from the original time setting of the original ASCII data file.
A custom Time zone would be very useful.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Maybe option for show time GMT on chart on LineChart can be good.
This can be usseful when we have imported data feed
