    Hi all,

    I’m new to strategy quant and downloaded the trial version. I let it run for a while and it found some strategies. I chose that strategies have to exit on fridays at 10 pm. However, when looking at the trades of a strategy, it can be seen that trades are nearly 7 days in duration, e.g. start on a sunday and end on a sunday. This should not be possible with my setting (see attached image 2).

    Is this a bug, or what am I doing wrong?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    there should be no issue with the Friday exit option at the current version. What timezone is used for your EURUSD data? If there is no data after 22:00 Friday the exit cannot processed

    you will be using not cloned data to your broker timezone – and because of that those data are UTC0 and friday candle is ending at 20:59

    always use cloned data to your broker timezone – so most probably to EST07 (UTC2 with US DST)

    Hey all,

    yes, it could be a timezone issue. My timezone is UTC +1. I just downloaded the tickdata from Dukascopy and ran SQ, I did not specifically change anything with regard to timezones. I don’t know how to clone timezone data or adjust it correctly :(.

    its easy – read the documentantion – https://strategyquant.com/doc

    and it doesnt matter what is your timezone, but what is the timezone of your broker

    I’m sorry, I could not find anything in the documentation about timezones. What exactly are you refering to?

    My apologies, I was browsing through the selected articles instead of the documentation, no wonder I couldn’t find it :D.

    I was able to clone my timezone now, thanks for all the help!
