Currently, these time zones are supported: EST(Eastern Standard Time), EET(Eastern European Time), CET(Central European Time), UTC (Universal Time).

MT4 server time of brokers "FIBO Group" and "Alpari" is on Eastern European Time (EET). This time zone is 2 hours ahead of universal time (UTC) in the standard time. And it is 3 hours ahead in the summertime. So, if your broker is one of them, you must type in 'EET' in this field.
If the time zone of your broker is not supported, simply calculate the time difference between time shown on the MT4 and universal time (UTC) and type manually in "BrokerTimeZoneUTCOffset" field.
Server time of "SIG" broker is 3 hours ahead of UTC and there is no summer time. So, calculating the time difference in minutes gives 180 minutes. Type in "180" in the next field.
If the broker's server time is behind UTC, the value must be entered negative.
