OBV different on MS2 and TS Mobile

Postby MeiniOz » Wed Oct 30, 2013 6:28 pm


I am baffled as to why I get such big differences in the output for the OBV indicator on the two platforms, Marketscope 2.0 and Trading Station Mobile.
Any clues?

Really weird. They should be the same.
As both use the same FXCM, source data.
Will investigate.

Possible reason.
The different length, the number of candles, of data Loaded in two platforms,
as OBV is cumulativ indicator, it is essential to have the same stream data length,
to produce the same results.

Furthermore, from the displayed chart, I can say, look mobile version uses, (looks like) a different algorithm. And this is out of my, out of reach, interest.
I can only, guarantee algorithm accuracy for Desktop version.
