TZDBHelper

Bi-directional coversions between local time of any time zone and UTC. Daylight saving time is supported. Link to related sites may be found in include\TZDBHelper.mqh. The module is external DLL exporting functionality of Delphi package http://code.google.com/p/delphi-tzdb/ which implements TZ database (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tz_database).

Note the TZDB uses TDateTime (Delphi native type) type which is double where integer part is number of days since 1970 and fraction part represents day time. MT4 uses datetime represented as integer in Unix convention, i.e. number of seconds since 1970.

For conversion use TZDateTimeToUnix/TZUnixToDateTime functions. TZDB supports daylight saving time adjustments.

Market helper

Reusable library providing market information: time zone, market hours. News days or holidays may be avoided. News/holidays are taken from CSV file which can be prepared using FFCalendar tools (http://www.forexfactory.com/showthread.php?t=250544). FFCalendar imports http://www.forexfactory.com/calendar.php, tize zone settings is crucial! Exported CSV file is to be filtered in Excel to shrink it, i.e. avoid useless events.
