Hello, I recently tried my new Expert advisor, but it didnt work as it should. I couldnt figure out where the problem is, but now i know. It seems like the iStochastic returns wrong value. Look at the picture in attachment. You can see here clearly, that the value of one stochastic is around 88, and the second 84. But when you look on the indicator window, both the signal and main lines are under these values. Can anyone help me to fix this?

 
Greeks Line Up at Banks and Drain ATMs as Tsipras Calls Vote
Greece’s banks may need an injection of fresh emergency funds to operate Monday as people rushed to pull out money after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras called a referendum that could decide his country’s fate in the euro. Two senior Greek retail bank executives said as many as 500 of the country’s more than 7,000 ATMs had run out of cash as of Saturday morning, and that some lenders may not be able to open on Monday unless there was an emergency liquidity injection from the Bank of Greece.

Your chart parameters and iStochastic parameters in your code are exactly the same?

Yes, i opened this chart with the "open chart" button in strategy tester. The stochastic values for other Bars are usually right, but sometimes here and there the wrong value occurs. I even tried another stochastic indicator downloaded somewhere on the net, but the results were still wrong. I really don´t know how to solve this.

perhaps check from Data window : hover & point the two Indicators you need to compare & check the info label values & the values in data window. They should be the same.

& the picture you post has different (30,3,3) & (9,3,3) parameter settings.

Hi, well i had the same issue. And i found the error:

It depends on the price_field enumeration:

iStochastic(Pair,PERIOD_H1,5,5,5,MODE_EMA,PRICE_CLOSE,MODE_SIGNAL,1) or iStochastic(Pair,PERIOD_H1,5,5,5,MODE_EMA,1,MODE_SIGNAL,1)

The funny thing is, both ways work whithout generating any error but the return value is completely different.

You must enter 1: for price close and not PRICE_CLOSE :

price_field - Price field parameter. Can be one of this values: 0 - Low/High or 1 - Close/Close.

Hope it will fix your problem..... Pat
