Candle times

Hi,

I've just started to have a look at NinjaTrader and I notice that the candle close times are different to most other charting packages - the time of the candle is the close, rather than the open. I don't like this is there anyway to change it? Here's an example screenshot.

Is there a way to change it so that the time is displayed as the opening time instead of the closing?

-> the eSignal chart has in realtime a wrong time... the open time is only valid for the open tick...
-> the Ninja chart has in realtime wrong time values... the "close time" is only valid for the close tick and is from open until close in the future !?
=> in the elite section you find my t4tBetterBars as NT7 bartype for Minute&Second based time charts with only using true real timestamps...

pros:
- any new bars has on open the timestamp of the first tick in this bar
- for all next ticks inside the bar period with this type you have the true timestamp of the last tick as real "bar time"

cons:
- the bar duration defined by time period is right, only the bar time (=time of last tick inside the bar) can be different from bar to bar, if a bar not have a tick on the first/last second of used time frame... its no problem, this is real trading !
