I found similar topics on Forum, but they sounded not quite same as my case, and decided to post this one.

I have following source code.

double SpanA_Buffer[], SpanB_Buffer[];

//These arrays are re-sized and also initialized as follow.

ArrayResize(SpanA_Buffer, a_begin-1);

ArrayInitialize(SpanA_Buffer, 0.0);

ArrayResize(SpanB_Buffer, Senkou-1);

ArrayInitialize(SpanB_Buffer, 0.0);

if (SpanA_Buffer[0] == SpanB_Buffer[0]) Print("Passed if (SpanA_Buffer[0] == SpanB_Buffer[0])");

Here is extracts from log file.

*** Successful case ***

SpanA_Buffer[0] = 0.8911 SpanB_Buffer[0] = 0.8911

Passed if (SpanA_Buffer[0] == SpanB_Buffer[0]

*** Failing case ***

SpanA_Buffer[0] = 0.8968 SpanB_Buffer[0] = 0.8968

I tried NormalizeDouble, but these values above do not really require to be rounded.

Moreover, when I tested with this function, values were rounded, and I couldn't get desirable result.

Majority of the comparison actually failed.

If someone could give me any advice, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much for your quick response.

I read through "working with doubles in MQL4" earlier, and checked and tested with some functions.

Now, I just changed the location of NormalizeDouble, from the section where I calculate values to the section where I actually assign the calculated result to the array.

Then result was very much improved!

Thank you for your help. Much appreciated.

But apparently hard of reading. One of the links points out that I state that you should NEVER use NormalizeDouble for any reason. It's use is always wrong.

Yep. I read that, too, and I was not using the function in that case.

And, it was really good that your msg pushed me to read these information through once again, and I could think of a few other things I could give a try. ;)
