I was able to reproduce this issue: check #4664 for updates.

In the meantime, you can schedule the event time manually for Sunday:

def Initialize(self):
self.SetTimeZone("America/New_York")

self.Schedule.On(self.DateRules.Every(DayOfWeek.Sunday),
self.TimeRules.AfterMarketOpen('EURUSD',0), # or specific time
self.DoSomething
)

def DoSomething(self):
pass
