Daylight Savings Time Problem

#1 Postby Bourne » Fri Mar 26, 2010 8:11 am

Hi,
I have downloaded and imported the Eur/Usd from the "datasource" link on the program, but I keep finding inconsistencies between it and my brokers (dbfx) historic data. The forex tester chart adds an extra candle on the 1 hr chart every time there is a switch on or off of daylight savings time. That extra hour continues to compile till the two charts are off from each other by a day in 2001. Has anyone else had this problem, or am I importing the chart wrong?
