I would like to do this as I think it affects some of my candle charts.

If so, where do you find the exact time? (to the second at least).

My platform has a clock of its own, but presumably most systems are sync'ed to NIST's atomic clock in Colorado.

You can sync your own PC (presumably you're using Windows) to that by

clicking on the clock --> Change date and time settings...-->Internet Time tab -->Change settings...-->select time.nist.gov from the list and click Update Now
