but i would be careful changing it. read first the stuff people post if that is what you want:

Hi Jared Broad ,

Leigham is right that there is no SetTimeZone description in the documentation.

Its not clear how it affects exchanges or trading hours, if it does?

Or if its only changes the displayed time for the logs and that stuff.
