Time zone of the selected asset, used for calculating AssetFrame. When your strategy contains a portfolio of different assets that you want to trade at different times, use this parameter to define the time frames of individual assets.
int, -23..+24, or UTC, WET, CET, ET, JST, AEST
0 when the current bar has no price quotes of the current asset or lies inside a day in the AssetZone, negative number of skipped bars at quote arrival or at day change, 1 otherwise. Can be used to set TimeFrame for skipping bars with no quotes or for daily trading on different time zones (see example).
Bar number of the last received price quote of the current asset, from 0 to NumBars-1. Can be used to determine if there was a quote in the current bar.
- The listed variables can be set and evaluated individually for every asset.
- For emulating day bars of different assets with different time zones, use 1-hour bars with AssetZone and AssetFrame (see example). Use FrameOffset for starting the emulated bar at a certain local hour.
// trade two assets with different time zones
BarPeriod = 60;
FrameOffset = 9; // trade both assets at 9:00 of their local time
AssetZone = WET;
AssetZone = JST;
TimeFrame = AssetFrame;
