candles aligned to the New York close: “OANDA ? GMT+2 Live.”
The existing OANDA MT4 server is named “OANDA ? GMT-5
this means each candlestick bar close GMT-5 every day
except saturday and sunday
The bar is composed of high, low, open, and close.
The rectangular portion of the bar is considered as the “real body”,
this represents the range between the candle’s open and close.
When the real body is black this indicates that the open is higher than the closing price of this period.
Conversely,a white real body indicates a bullish tone with the close being higher than the open of that period.
If there is no shadow on the upper end of the candlestick body, it means that the close price or the open price
but closes lower than the opening price this is placed on the candlestick chart as a candlestick shooting star.
daily candles that begin and end at midnight GMT, which corresponds to 7pm New York time. However, we have received feedback from many clients requesting that we change the time zone on our MT4 servers, so that the daily candles begin and end at 5 PM New York time. To phase in these changes, we have started by updating some of our MT4 demo servers to test that everything works smoothly, before we proceed with updating our live MT4 servers.
