Jerry, OTOH I appreciate the PNF charts. But, OTOH, QuoteTracker, the software you guys developed in your heyday, was a far BETTER "9" or "9.5" on a 10-scale. In sharp contrast to QT, MedvedTrader is not even close to it.... currently, IMHO it is only a "6" on a 10-scale. May I suggest you pay a professional SWQA guy for effective help, in order to locate and learn about the many-many issues that persist.. Jerry, you have been soliciting free help for bug reporting, but, apparently, the last 4 YEARS has not had enough time for the free help... to do the job for you. Because, despite you working on it for many YEARS, still the many serious issues/bugs that mislead, and these and many other discrepancies do persist and remain embedded. The followings are some of the issues that you, or somebody, should have noticed and corrected 4 or so YEARS ago. ISSUE #1: In P&F mode, erroneously and alarmingly the most recent/last days are completely messed up and MISLEADING... so how can traders rely on it? Chances are you have never noticed it, as you do not look for bugs. Or you do your unit testing on some stock with little or no after-hours trading The after-market trading gets painted, and it gets appended, even after you come back after the "after hours trading" has already ended. The last day's after-market trades get appended/included/painted, which is wrong and misleading. This happens during after hours trading.... and the Xs and Os so remain, even after the after hours market has ended... even after a new day has started. FYI, for instance AAPL did not drop to $173.8 during the "day" session of 3/6/18. And no, FYI, it did not start going back up again from $173.8 to 176.64 at 15:47:07 local time. FYI, the "after regular hours" part is NOT separated from the last day's "day" market action.... and, of course, it should be separated. This is in P&F mode, if you choose "View => Extended hours => Never" Or, this is in P&F mode, AFTER the after hours trading has ended, if you choose "View => Extended hours => Last 2 days, during extended hours". ISSUE #2: MT provides a lot of false and misleading info. For instance, AAPL didn't open at 174.90. And, didn't reach #176.00 during the first 10 minutes of the regular session on 3/7/18. And no, this is contrary to the data on my broker's website, so it did not come from them. However, if you've got a charting software that manipulates the incoming quote stream, then the charting software can, could, and will likely display many misleading things. ISSUE #3: In P&F mode, erroneously, the most recent after hours trading is treated like as if it was NOT part of the "last 2 days" but it is. ISSUE #4: IF you choose "View => Extended hours => Last 2 days, during extended hours",.there should be a difference between "Last 2 days during extended hours" and "Last 2 days". ISSUE #5: In PNF mode, if you set it to "Last 2 days", definitely and erroneously it is unclear where the "day" starts, and where the premarket ends. FYI, yes, premarket starts at 7 am local time.... but the regular "day" session did not and does not start at 8:43:52 am local time today, at APPL, on 3/7/18. I hope this helps. Rob
