eSignal didn't adjust the clock? anybody having the same problem?

  1. My computer clock and my eSignal clock are in synch as GMT-5 and they show NY time.

    All stocks (try GE for example) on any day before today now start trading at 8:30 and end at 15:00.

    If you use the 24hours time template you will see that trading starts at 8:30 and ends at 15:00 on any day before today (any day before Oct 27) on all NYSE stocks.

    Once again, my eSignal and computer clock are showing GMT -5, that's NY time.

    Anybody else experiencing this? Any eSignal rep. here? It seems that the guys there forgot to adjust the times on their historical database? Same thing happened last year by the way.

    no problem here but I use esignal as data feed to ensign
  3. I just found the solution to this, what I did just now was to check the "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes" box on the Windows Date and Time Properties. That did not change the actual time on my computer, since it was already adjusted to the current NY time, but oddly enough it did solve the eSignal issue.

    Well problem solved although it would still be interesting to know the logic behind this..

    Thanks y'all
