Is it possible to have SC start a new daily bar when the market opens at 6pm? Everything Iíve read in the documentation says to reverse the starting and ending times for intraday charts but nothing I can find for Daily charts.

Yes. Use an intraday chart set to 1440 mins and the start time to where you want the open to be.

Yep. If you want the start tick to be at 6pm that should be the start time.

I finally have the bars high and low to match the CME but the daily(1440m) chart at the bottom shows the last bar as Feb 11 instead of Fed 12. I have start time as 17:00:00 and end time as 16:00:00 and not using evening session time. If I am reading the documentation correctly there is no way around the chart reading as the previous day. I have tried about every combination I can think of. Is this how you have your times set?

Thanks

To get the bar's date stamp of a 1-0-0 chart to use the date that follows a previous day's 18:00:00 ET start, you'll need to:
- Change the Start Time to 00:00:00, so it is 6 hours later.
- Change the Time Zone to Brussels (+1 CET/+2 CEST), so it is also 6 hours later.

Sierra's bar datetime timestamp is at the bar's Open, so if the Open is at 18:00, it will show that day's date.
Note: This workaround will still be off at DST changes because Brussels and New York do not change on the same day.

Bottom line: There is no way to do exactly what you want.

Comparing the OHLC values of a 'daily' 1-0-0 bar created with intraday data (.scid) to an Historical - Daily bar that uses Daily data (.dly) may not always be exact:
