    what means auto timeshift adjust and what means adjust weekly time remain by_min in the settings?

      AutoTimeShiftAdjust: It adjusts for Symbol() names like: “EURUSD+1H”. However, change to “false” if your Symbol() name DOES contain a natural “-” or “+” sign.

      TimeRemainByMin: At least one broker’s Weekly feed has a flakey error. The weekly bars SAY they begin on calendar Sunday at 00:00:00 but in fact the first few hours of Sunday trades are applied to the *previous* weekly bar, and then a new weekly bar occurs starting Monday 00:00:00. The broker’s weekly bar start time is a lie by exactly 1 day. Adding a single day of minutes (1440) to the timer provides the true time remaining. This variable is a hack to fix the broker’s error. Alternatively, this variable could be used for a different purpose: The weekly transition may occur over a weekend. This adjustment *might* be able to be used to count down to the broker’s Friday close. However, that may result in “negative” seconds at the beginning of the week.

    It would be great if you could include an alarm if the countdown is over. Furthermore it would be cool if you give us the possibility to display the countdown also in big letters (possibility to choose font type, size and colour) in the right corner 3 at Metatrader.
