How to correctly get H4 bar data in forex market?

Hi, I am new to quantconnect, trying to understand how does the consolidator works, what I want to achieve is to get H4 candle in forex market. 

I use `consolidator` to consolidate hourly quotebar into 4 hour bar, it start to count number of hours from 00:00:00. However, the forex market opens at Sunday 5pm EST, the correct H4 cancdle should start counting from then.

How should I set the starting time of the consolidaator? Or may be the starting time of the algo? 

Many thanks in advance!
