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, 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 and WL4 data. Yahoo is very close to WL4 data. Candlestick patterns are very sensitive to range values so this would matter...Ken
