Why are my charts displaying the wrong time zone on Sierra Chart?



I am located in the Pacific time zone, but my charts on Sierra Chart are displaying as if I was in the central time zone? Is there any way I can edit this so the time is aligned with my own time zone? My computer settings are set to Pacific time.



This is a simple fix that can be found in the same settings box that you initialized your data feed in.

1. Head over to File > Data/Trade Service Settings

It is safe to assume that if your platform is displaying the wrong time zone that it either, A. Didn’t automatically set to one or B. It has been set to Chicago/Central Time.

2. In the Data/Trade Service Settings box head over to the right side of the window and select the Time Zone drop down menu.

As you can see, our option is currently set to Not Specified. This will potentially set your charts to the time zone of the exchange.

3. Select the Los Angeles time zone to adjust your chart’s time zone settings and then left click OK.

Once selected, any chart in the future that is opened will automatically set to the Pacific Time Zone.

Let us know if you have any further questions related to this issue.
