contradiction between chart price and export datas price (YM

Postby hendrix » 05 Feb 2015

Hello

I have launched a datas export and when I have compared the chart and my export (with excel), I have noted a big difference about prices.

Please look my exemple on an attachement. How to explain this?

My data provider is CQG.

Thanks

Hello hendrix,

As far as we can see on the screenshot, the time of the bars you are comparing is different, 11:22:53 and 11:23:25. As the result, other values are also different.

Please provide the following information:

1. Specify how you have exported the data exactly.
2. Provide full size screenshot of the chart.
3. Export the data of the instrument you are referring to from QuoteManager in .qmd file: https://www.multicharts.com/trading-sof ... rting_Data
4. The workspace where the issue is reproduced.

Also, please select the correct Price Scale for the instrument on the chart, right click on the Price Scale -> select the instrument.

Hello hendrix,

You are comparing 1 second chart and 1 tick data of the ASCII file. As you can see, there are multiple ticks within 1 second bar.

The price within the same time will be identical only if the Time zone of the chart and the exported file are the same.

1. What is the Time Zone of the chart and which one was selected when exporting from QM?
2. Also, it is not visible on the screenshot of the Edit Data window, what is the price for the specified time?
