trading to a specific time

Dear Panagiotis,

I would like to trade 10 min before NY close, independ if it is EST or EDT in New York.

I have set timezone to EasternStandard and tradetime to 4:50 pm. That works great - and it adjustes automaiclly to EDT at the beginning of March and back in November.

My question is:

Have I choosen the right way to achive the trading 10 min before NY close or is there a way you would like to recommend, which take normal / wintertime and summer / daylightsavingtime into account?

Kindest regards,

Thank you very much, Panagiotis!

So EST changes automaticlly to EDT second Sunday in March and back at the beginning of November? No need to adjust the timeshift by me and code?

Hi xabbu,

Yes it should adjust automatically.
