Not able to align Oanda data. Forex

i just started quantconnect here.

i am trying to align data in quantconnect to my live Oanda before proceeding with algorithm. 

i found that they are not the same... i read it due to GMT diff but is there a way to align it?

i tried..

startdate = startdate.AddHours(-11);

 SetStartDate(startdate);

but looks like setstartdate do not take in hours into consideration

then how do i align it.. or should i use a ( if {timerange} do....; else{null} ) during ondata()?

Hey Tham,

By default, QCAlgorithm time zone is set to New York's timezone EDT/EST. Since Oanda data is in UTC, you can change the algorithm time zone with:

# In Initialize
SetTimeZone("UTC");

I highly recommend completing the bootcamps to learn more about the QuantConnect API and reading the documentation on time to learn more.

Best
Rahul

great thanks... oh ya use SetTimeZone();

but i guess the timing isnt that of a concern when doing backtesting...

just unless you wanted to test and check specifically time window...

btw i have set up VS2019 for quantconnect... i can see the functions and example much better now..
