MacDHistogram Values not consistent on Chart vs. Paintbar

Recommended Posts

I'm running latest version of MT, which I updated to this morning.

I have a chart with MACDHistogram with default values 12,26,9,Close,EMA

I have a Custom scanner running the same default values, and have a logic portion looking for MacDHistogram positive crossover at 0:

When the scanner crosses from negative to positive (as logic implies), it is not consistent with the Chart.

Any clues?

The two should match. The easiest way to check is to set Scan value to the histogram's value, and compare the value you see on the portfolio to the one you see on the chart.

The problem you're seeing may be a mismatch either in the candle size or in the extended hours between the chart and the scan. Those should be exactly same in order to match.
