You can use the Hour() function to get the current hour on the server.
On mine it shows 12, which it is 9:30 right now (PST) , so if you want to do 9am-3pm your time, you will need to adjust the integer.

int hour = Hour();
Comment(IntegerToString(hour)); // so you can see what is in this variable

hour = hour - 3; // if I was to adjust it for 9am-3pm my time

if((hour >= 9) && (hour < 15)){
    //// Allow for trading
    //// otherwise after hours

hope this helps

Everything in the market is like a fart, if you have to force it, it is probably shit

Does anyone even bother reading API or DOCS any longer?


Those are built in functions for dealing with server and local times.

*cough* RTFM....

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
