Unfortunately, you cannot change the GMT offset on MT4 from GMT+2, and GMT+3 in summer time.
Unlike some other trading platforms, MT4’s time setting is fixed and it is the same for all online Forex brokers which are using the trading platform.
Many traders may want to know why the MT4’s time is set to GMT+2.
It is because the trading platform is following the time of the New York Exchange Market Closing, as in when the MT4 is showing 00:00, New York Exchange Market is closing.
Overnight Swap charges occur when the MT4 server time is 00:00, it is because the New York Exchange Market is also closing, and as everyone knows, US Market is basically the central of world’s financial markets.
Some MT4 programs to change the time
If you find the MT4’s time setting as very inconvenient, then you can also find a program to change the time display on MT4 to another.
This does not change the trading server time, but it just changes how you see it on your MT4 though, maybe some traders find it useful.
Unfortunately, we are currently not introducing any EAs or indicators for MT4. So please find one for yourself on the web.
