    Moving Averages WAY Different Between Charting Companies

    I have the 5ems and 20 ema setup on an hourly chart in both ThinkorSwim and Ninja. The light blue is 5 ema. The yellow 20 ema. Notice the 5 is above the 20 on TOS. The 5 is below the 20 on Ninja. This is not good.

    Hello Option Whisperer,

    Thank you for posting.

    Unfortunately I am not familiar with what code TOS uses for calculating their Exponential Moving Average EMA however if you can access their code you may compare this to the calculations used by NinjaTrader at the link provided below.Let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      I think I figured out the problem. I had overnight turned off on TOS. Once I turned that on, the ema's agreed. Is there a way to turn off overnight on Ninja?

        If you want to display regular trading hours for MES right click in your chart->Data Series->Select "CME US Index Futures RTH" from the Trading hours drop down menu then click Ok.
