Consider Using DateTimeOffset Instead of DateTime

See original GitHub issue

I’ve been going over my code and have been moving over my “ticks” or “candles” to Trady.Core.Candle. However, I just noticed that the “tick” is a DateTime rather than a DateTimeOffset. From my understanding, DateTimeOffsets are preferred as they contain timezones and save a lot of additional work (in theory?).

Anyways, I was wondering what the feeling is on updating the ITick.DateTime field to be a DateTimeOffset instead.

@Mike-EEE I have just released a beta-version on this issue, just let you know 😄

@Mike-EEE Sorry for the late response. You’ve made a good argument on using DateTimeOffset rather than using DateTime.

To be honest, I didn’t think of it when I initially created this library, I was focusing on implementing indicators & the rule system. This library is now heavily rely on DateTime, but I agree that it should be a change to work around with the timezone problem. The only problem is there may be a large code change from it 🤣
