Per Application Time Settings

We have a Stock Market Viewer application which uses web services for data distribution.
A problem occurs when data is sent accross timezones where the datetime values are being shown in
the local time, so that a trade occurring at 12:51 in the datagrid in the same timezone as the server will be shown
as 14:51 at the remote client.  I know this is an issue having to do with datetime and xmlserialization. In some cases this would
be a natural way to display the data but clearly not in all.

Is there any way to set an application domain or thread to simulate being in a different timezone or having a time offset without having to configure regional settings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you...

When you send the data why not send the time as well
then your application will be able to have both times
