My broker (Darwinex) changes the broker time zone to account for Daylight Savings, so you don’t need to. You would need to check for any brokers you are using.
I’ve addressed a similar issue, that of not wanting to trade during “the swap” in the following way:
1. Use the “Clone to Timezone” tool in the data manager to convert the Dukascopy charts (default UTC+0) over to whatever UTC your broker is in. Mine was UTC+2.
2. In the builder under “Trading Options”, use the “Limit Time Range” feature to the block of time you specifically want to trade.
This has worked perfectly for me and I get no 40 pip spread trades opened up during the swap. :-). It should work the same for you to get trades only during the last hour of the market. Just make sure the time you block out matches your broker time… at UTC+2, it would be exactly as you put it 22:59 to 23:59. At Dukascopy default UTC+0, it would be 20:59-21:59.
