PLOT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MC & TS

Postby piranhaxp » 10 Apr 2008

Hi,

If I try to use following indicator :

Code: Select all

Inputs: Pct(80), sens(10);

Variables: NuHI(0), NuLo(0), tgt(14), drng(0), Rng(0);
Variables: AvgRng(0), AR(0), HiTgt(0), dcntr(0), LoTgt(0);
Variables: value10(0), value1(0);

AR = Avg_Rng (sens) ;
IF DATE <> DATE[1] THEN
BEGIN
NuHI = CLOSE ;
NuLo = CLOSE ;
dcntr = dcntr+1 ;
END ;

IF HIGH > NuHI THEN NuHI = HIGH ;
IF LOW < NuLo THEN NuLo = LOW ;
drng = NuHI-NuLo ;
HiTgt = NuLo+(AR*(Pct*0.010000)) ;
LoTgt = NuHI-(AR*(Pct*0.010000)) ;
IF DCount > sens+2 THEN
BEGIN
PLOT3 (HiTgt, "Hi TGT") ;
PLOT4 (LoTgt, "Lo TGT") ;
END ;
with function ("DCOUNT")


Code: Select all

Variables: Cntr(1);


IF DATE <> DATE[1] THEN Cntr = Cntr+1 ;
DCount = Cntr ;
I get different PLOT's in MC and TS. What is the reason and where is the solution ?

Regards.

Mike

We need correct and complete archive to test it. DCount function can't out put something meaningful; because it is obvious it will return 1 or 2 always.
Please send ELD or PLA archive.

It depends on your data....

and when TS and Multicharts starts counting a bar from...one starts the bar on the opening price the other on closing price....a real frustration....

Func should count up

DCount function can't out put something meaningful; because it is obvious it will return 1 or 2 always.
Is this statement incorrect, or are variable values not preserved across function calls in MC?

Hi piranhaxp,

We ran tests with the code that you sent us both in TS and MC and there were no differences that we could identify. If you still see discrepancies, please contact our customer support. They'll get connected to your PC and you'll be able to show the differences.

Thank you.
