Start Time Question on UI - gkendrick - 12-31-2018

On the Gekko UI I'm running a live trade bot. On the Strat runner page under the Runtime display it says: Watch Since 2018-12-25 03:57

I was running the bot based on 1 hour and I know it will start process after the warm-up period. 

Does that mean its going to check a candle against my strategy at:

2018-12-25 04:57
2018-12-25 05:57
2018-12-25 06:57

or is it smart enough to

2018-12-25 05:00
2018-12-25 06:00
2018-12-25 07:00
etc... on the hour

 If it is (A) does that mean the only way to start it on the hour is to hit the start button exactly on the clocks hour?

Gekko is batching candles right from the moment you start it, so scenario a) does apply.
Why do you think it is important to have it working like in case b)?

Scenario a) not necessarily performs worse than scenario b). It might in some case, but it might also outperform.

First thank you for answering my question!

What I do is create my strategies in TradingView because it's more user friendly and I can make changes to data time periods, parameters, indicators and code fairly quick and look at the results compared to changing it in Gekko. Once I get something that works well I just create strategy in Gekko. I always set my data to work on the minute by adjusting the data range (i.e. 2018-01-01 00:00). I can easily see if my code is right by comparing the output from TradingView and Gekko.

So to answer your question TradingView does everything to the minute or in this case to the hour.

What prompted my question was I had a trade that didn't close when it was suppose to. The only thing I can see is that its not starting on the hour. So I'm guessing or hoping I can start it exactly on the hour to clear this up.
