I have a trouble with daily data in ninjatrader.
How ninja define the hour close for daily data? I have imported new daily data for 2 instruments that have the same session and same exchange for a multi instrument strategy, so 1 instrument have the close set to 19 pm and other 00.00...obviously this moves all the second chart 1 day forward (oo.oo is new day).
See the picture..
How I can correct this??
Thanks a lot!!

Yes, the session template affects the timestamp shown for daily data, but not the data itself.
For example, if you open a daily chart with the session template 24/7 for ES
-> the timestamp shown on the chart for the daily bar will be midnight EST
-> but the data of that daily bar will not correspond to the time from midnight EST to midnight EST
There will be a mismatch between timestamp and data, as the data is supplied by the data vendor
-> Zenfire supplies daily data for the regular session (from 8:30 AM CT to 3:15 PM CT)
-> Kinetick supplies daily data for the full session / settlement price (from 5:00 PM CT to 4:15 PM CT, settlement at 3:15 PM CT)
With a session template 24/7 those bars will simply be displayed with a false timestamp.
