Have you changed the study "Period OHLC-Variable Period"?

I've been using this study on a daily chart to plot the All Time High (ATH) and Low. I'm using it on a daily chart, Time Period Type = Days, Time Period Length = 320.

It has always worked fine, until yesterday when it started reporting yesterday's high, and now today's high, in both the ES and the RTH as the ATH, which they are not, obviously.

Wondering if you made any internal changes that may have caused that to happen. I have not updated the version in the past week (updated the Sunday of the Roll over a week ago, R43275)

If you have not updated your software then it is not possible for there to be any changes to that study on your system.

Additionally, we do not believe there have been any changes to that study (I can't check for sure right now).

I was able to get this to work by finding the right combination of time period and number. For whatever reason, using 320 days had started causing it to report the current day's high as the high of the data set which spanned 3 years or so. Using too many days caused a problem, using too few also (as you would expect) also caused inaccurate results.

When I switched to Years, and 5 it worked. Not sure why, but that's what I found.
