Different calculation on TS8 and MC3

Postby SP » 08 May 2008

I use the MD code from the TS forum. Both charts show the @ES.D with the same datafeed.

The plotted Bid/Ask/Delta values are complete different.

Hi SP,

When you made the comparison of the MD results, did you make sure that the bars plotted in TS and in MC are exactly identical?

Please make sure that the data is absolutely the same. If there are still discrepancies, please contact us via LiveChat.

Regards.

Hi Marina,

the second number below the bars shows the bid+ask volume and they are identical on both charts, so it is not a sync problem, especially as both charts are feeded from the TS datafeed and the bars show the same OHLC values.

Did you try it on your computer?

Hi SP,

The indicator is based on the real-time InsideBid and InsideAsk values. These values are taken from the status line (not from the chart) as the indicator is being calculated.

The thing is that the data in the status line comes from a different source compared to the data on the chart. So even if the data in TS and MC charts is identical, the data as it is streaming into the status line (and used by the indicator) might be different - due to the possible lags.

Also, when a bunch of ticks arrives, the indicator in MC can't keep up with them. As the result the caclulations won't be executed on every tick (unlike in TS).

Hence the differences.

This behavior probably won't get changed in the nearest MC versions.

Regards.
