How can I specify the timezone in reqHistoricalData method? I tried this way: 
reqHistoricalData(tws,twsSTK('IBM'),'20110417 00:00:26 EST',"5 mins","5
but it returns based on my locale or tws. 
For an example: 

2011-04-11  21:55:00,163.76,163.95,163.69,163.89,1361,163.8,0,949 <-end of
trading session, CET time 
2011-04-12  15:30:00,163.49,163.57,163.2,163.41,1331,163.37,0,418 <-start of
trading session, CET time 

I can convert it later on, but it is very difficult, because I use CET by
default and there is a lag in summer time between CET and EST. And it gets
very messy.
