View Full Version : WCF timestamps and timeones

07-25-2013, 11:56 AM
Timestamps in the WCF, e.g. TickTime in GetNewTick, do not seem to match the GMT offset specified in GetAccountStmt.

For example, two different servers ( and report the GMT offset as -4, but the times they report in TickTime are GMT-6 and GMT+3. The same applies to other timestamps such as OpenTime in GetOpenPositions

(Timestamps in GetChartData are transmitted in a different format, and always seem to be GMT+0.)

It seems that the correct value is SvrGMT returned by Login. The GMTOffset returned in Login and the GMT offset in GetAccountStmt seem to be meaningless.

[N.B. Neither SvrGMT nor GMTOffset are documented at http://www.hybrid-solutions.com/support/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/1949]

Dear Jcolins,

I will check all reported functions, If there reasons to justify the difference or not, I will keep you updated.:)

Thanks for your notes.
