Hello,

I must be doing something wrong with the 200 day sma.  Can you tell me what the correct reading for the 200-day sma is currently?  Mine is showing anywhere from 96.31 to 102.11 depnding on which zoom I use.  I have my chart templates set up so that each time I press F1-F8 they zoom in closer, all using the simple, 200.

Thank you

It sounds like the line you are seeing changing is not a moving average of price but something else.

If you press "I" for Indicator and look at the tree, is the 200sma indented once under price or is it indented deeper than once or indented under something other than price?

When you add a moving average, be sure you highlight price when it asks what to do the average of.
