Hello!

I was analyzing the chart of EURUSD of the last friday 26th of september 2014 and I have seen different values for the close of the bar at 17:30.

These are the values:

30 min timeframe: 1.26956

15 min time frame: 1.26892

5 min time frame:1.26872

It seems that there is a time shift among the different timeframes.

best regards

Did you check the bars that terminates at 17:30 ? If yes which broker/server.

than you very much for the answer, so the problem could be on the broker side. I supposed that the broker send all the data and the application is in chrge to group them in the selected time frame.

I can confirm the close values looking at the data window in the terminal...

but what you do see are

on M5 the bar 17:30 till 17:34:59

on M15 the bar 17:30 till 17:44:59

on M30 the bar 17:30 till 17:59:59

so the opening times are all from 17:30, but the close times are from the end of the bar time.

There is only an M1 bar terminating at 17:30:59...

so one would have to look at

M5 bar at 17:25

M15 Bar at 17:15

M30 Bar at 17:00

to get hopefully ;) identical close value of the last tick before 17:30.

 To say in other words a bar at a give time in the data window starts at that time.
