Hi,

According to my tests, the IHistory:getBarStart(Period period, long time) method returns the candle start time always in GMT time zone, regardless current time zone settings (on client machine, on platform settings). It is meaningful in higher periods (four hours, daily, weekly ...).

Is that correct?

The same is for getTimeForNBarsForward() and probalby other fmethods of IHistory.

My workaround is as follows:


Long dateTimeGMT = toTimeZoneGMT(dateTime); // convert value to GMT zone, my util function

Long barStartTime = this.getHistory().getBarStart(period, dateTimeGMT); // or other IHistory method

Long returnValue = toTimeZoneCET(barStartTime); // convert back to my zone, my util function

This problem occurs, when connecting through com.dukascopy.api.system.IClient.

When calling IHistory methods from Indicator -> is OK.
