Yahoo time issue for EU markets

1) you are not using the right symbol format.  You are using Yahoo's Native symbol format. If doing that, MT doesn't know the type of symbol or what timeframe to use with it, so it uses US Equities and thinks it is a stock. Here is an example of proper formats:

CRUD:MI

#EUR.USD

#XAU.USD

@FDAXM15:EX

@CLK15:NYM

@TFM15:NYB

 

2) I only see an issue if not using HTML. When I switched to HTML quotes and refreshed, correct time showed up. NOTE: that would not change quotes already read in, so you can't just look at the chart.  I am looking at the quote date and quote time columns on the grid (or top row of raw data)

 

I will check to see if anything can be done about the API version of the quotes. Right now it seems that they are returning data in symbol's "native" timezone, which is bad, since that timezone is not returned with the quote, so not something we can convert.
