Just to remind Dynamic Pro Scalper is an Asian session scalper. It needs from correct time because it trade during the Asian session. In case of wrong GMT settings the robot may show unexpected results.

Here are the settings which you have to check:

Auto_GMT - when its value is TRUE the robot automatically try to find the correct GMT offset of the broker. If you want to use manual GMT offset then set its value to false.

Manual_GMT_Offset - In case that you want to set the GMT offset manually then you need to enter here the winter GMT offset of your broker. The parameter is also important for backtests. If you set incorrect value then the backtest results could be wrong.

Calculate_DST - if your broker switches the server time between winter and summer Daylight Saving Time (DST), set Calculate_DST =true.
