to match the GMT time in skilled info space on the chart of forex pair, to which the skilled is connected, with http://time.is/GMT (or different dependable supply).

Because the skilled makes use of a number of timeframes for the evaluation, it’s essential for the quotes of all timeframes (M1, M15, M30, H1, H4) to be downloaded within the terminal for testing. On the similar time, the testing itself might be carried out on any timeframe.
