Have been toubleshooting code on candelsticks and came across an error in the .IXIC (NASDAQ comp) index data. Openning price data for 11/6/08 and 11/7/08 from WL5 Fidelity DataSet Indices/.IXIC does not match same for Yahoo data provider, NASDAQ.com site, Fidelity WL4 data set. I have just updated WL5 .IXIC index for 1/30/08 and error still persists. Any ideas why WL5 data does not match? As the data below shows WL5 is off quite a bit compared with NASDAQ.com and WL4 data. Yahoo is very close to WL4 data. Candlestick patterns are very sensitive to range values so this would matter...Ken

We're not data vendors, so the best is to hear it from Fidelity.
