hi,

making first steps in ACSIL
i'm trying to create an indicator but didn't get the results i wanted, so for debugging and checking my input i tride printing values to the log.


float MyFloat = (sc.BaseData[SC_CLOSE][sc.Index]);
SCString Buffer;
Buffer.Format("Value: %f", MyFloat);
sc.AddMessageToLog(Buffer,0);


This should print the CLOSE but they don't seem to match real close prices.
FDAX is around +9000, the printed messages range from 50 to +1000 ???
what am i'm doing wrong here ?

This may be not be the cause of your problem, but I've had problems before as well using SC_CLOSE in basedatain so I use SC_LAST and that seems to always work ok.

Not sure unless we were to test this with the exact same study function.

We see no reason why there would be a problem.

We did not catch on to this earlier, but SC_CLOSE is not valid. That is some other value defined by the Windows operating system. You need to use SC_LAST.
