It's really bad if NT uses (as far as I understand) Windows clock as its own. That leads exactly to the problem you highlighted.

Being a rookie, I just assumed that NT synchronized with my PC time. A reason for me assuming this is that I am 2 hrs behind market time, so the candles start plotting at 730 PC time.

I could be completely wrong though so I'll check on the NT forums and confirm.
