Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thanks: 1 given, 6 received

I've been digging into the synching of time via internet servers because I get trade markers on my chart that are way off the bar that the trade was executed on.

I've tried all the suggestions in this thread but am getting random results.
I've tried:

1. Dimension 4
2. Windows automatic updates
3. Manual syncing

The results are that some days its no problem and time is updated immediately and other days it just errors constantly. Some suggested it was a firewall issue so I pinged the server simultaneously while updating time. The ping went through but the time update produced an error.

What is interesting is Dimension 4 gives you a history of its synching operation. This picture shows that there are gaps in days where time updates do not work. Does anyone have any information on this? It just seems so strange.
