How to run a strategy with custom Day start time?

In JForex Chart Preferences it is possible to set a custom "Day start time" : UTC, EST, etc. This recalculates all bars, indicators, etc.

Is it possible to run an entire strategy on bar data that is not using the default (UTC) timezone? E.g. if we use EST day start:
- the onBar() method will be called at 00:00 EST for a new daily bar
- history.getBars() will return bars starting at 00:00 EST
- indicators will be calculated using EST timezone bars, etc.
