    I am using the standard EA code from Algo Wizard and have a set of EAs that are heavily dependent on trading hours to work correctly.

    I just tested the EAs on a live account with Darwinex and it is placing trades outside of the specified trading hours.

    Does everyone else also experience this huge issue?

    if you are using pending orders, limiting time range is working only for them – so opened trades can be outside those hours

    Thanks for the response. I am only using orders at market, so won’t be related to pending orders.

    In backtesting it works perfectly, only showing trades entered in the correct hours at market. It just isn’t working in MT4 environment in live trading.

    With no details provided it is very hard to guess whats causing it… Could be related to the timezone different depending on the strategy rules for example …

    I have emailed one of the EAs to support for review. It is very standard, nothing complicated and I haven’t changed anything from your standard format.

    It looks like I have found a workaround, I am using the Current Hour condition within the code instead.
