This is a follow-up reminder that on Sunday 1st of December 2019, CWG Markets MetaTrader 4 server time will move from GMT+0 to GMT+2.
This is to follow the internationally recognized practice of displaying Forex and CFD charts in GMT+2 and GMT+3 based on “5pm New York”. As the time in the US moves forward or back depending on US daylight saving, CWG Markets server times will move accordingly between GMT+3 and GMT+2.

As CWG Markets MetaTrader 5 will be newly launched, CWG Markets MetaTrader 5 historical charts and time will be based on GMT+2 and GMT+3.
Platform time will remain GMT+0 until Sunday 1st of December 2019. On your trading terminal, the market will close on Friday 29th of November 2019 at 21:00 GMT+0. (6am China Standard Time.)
Please note that existing historical charts based on GMT+0 on your trading terminal will not be erased.
Platform time will be GMT+2 from the start of trading week on Monday 2nd of December 2019 00:00 GMT+2. (6.00am China Standard Time)
