new member question regarding the time managemet in backtest and live trading

Hi everybody,

I have a newbie question regarding the time management of EAs. Frirst of all, what is the time stamp of the historical data, is it the GMT time, the Broker (Alpari US) time or MetaQuote historical data server time?

for example in the backtesting of FabTurbo, I disabled the AutoGMTOffSet option and the default GMTOffSet is 1. Based on this the backtest result is quite good.

Then I want to continue live demo test and enable the AutoGMTOffSet function. Now the GMTOffSet is 2. In this case, will the live forward test transaction time frame align with the back test time frame (The code allows trading from 20-23)? or should I disable AutoGMTOffSet and use the ManualGMTOffSet to 1?

thanks in advance
