    I’ve recently opened a tradestation account, and I want to run an algo on it for the first time, for BTCUSD.

    I am not familiar with the platform, but I know that with most FX brokers, I need to set up my backtest data to the right timezone.

    So I’m asking people here:

    What timezone do you use for your backtest data, if your broker is Tradestation?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    the rule for a chart displayed in TradeStation is that you can either use the local time (of the PC) or the exchange time which refers to exchange timezone for the market traded. So I guess you need to match the exchange zone for the BTCUSD market is the default value is ‘exchange’ timezone
