cTrader Backtest Using Trading Hours

If you are backtesting a cTrader cBot which uses trading hours, so a start and end time when the robot will trade, you need to be aware that backtests are run on the cTrader servers and your UTC time offset should be UTC+0.


How to Change cTrader UTC Time?

To change the trading platform time you need to go to the bottom right of the cTrader window and click on the UTC button, when you run a backtest make sure this is set to UTC+0 and when you are doing your normal trading change it back to your PC or local UTC time.
