There is a difference in the POC, VAH and VAL lines between the Volume Value Area Lines study and VbP study.

Both are set to 'Draw Developing Value Area Lines', and 'Ticks per Volume Bar' of 2. All other settings appear to be consistent between the two studies as well. Please see attached chartbook which has these two studies. The difference is particularly noticeable for the day 5-10. Why is there a difference between the two, they should be the same?

Thank you.

We are looking into this. It appears like this issue has something to do with a slight rounding error because of the Ticks per Volume Bar being set to 2. In any case, we will solve it.

I have similar problem but with Value Area Lines (not volume).
In TPO study - I've selected calculation based on TPO. Value area high and low are different than in TPO Value Area Lines study
