Adjust TWS chart bar opentime question

Hi all,

Is there a way to adjust/shift TWS chart bar opentime for H4 timeframe? The bar opentime & timezone for forex & futures are different in TWS under H4 chart, but I'll prefer to see them in the same timezone at a specific bar opentime sequence.

Here's the default bar opentime (server time) sequence for forex & futures (Enabled for Futures chart: Show data outside of regular trading hours) :-

* Forex bar opentime run in this sequence: 0:00 -> 4:00 -> 8:00 -> 12:00 ...
* Futures (ie. ticker YM) in this sequence : 23:00 -> 3:00 -> 7:00 -> 11:00 ...

As I've mentioned in another thread of mine, using for TWS solved this bar opentime discrepancy, but Multicharts for TWS have other problem of it's own.

Hope someone could advice.
