    I was looking at the 1min chart on oanda, on ninjatrader (gain capital feed) and accucharts (fxsolutions feed). All three charts are slightly different, especially on the candlestick charts.

    Any idea why that might be?
  2. can't speak to candlesticks, never used them and you haven't said in what way they're
    different but i did compare Oanda's 10 sec chart with NinjaTrader's tho the instruments
    are different - 6E v eurusd and discovered the w 1-2 of a new rally was larger on Oanda
    which i attributed to greater volume, not sure if such is seen on 1 min charts
    there'll be a difference if pipettes are/not displayed on the chart - 5 v 4 decimal places -
    variable v fixed spread, or just the variance in the spread between brokers
    there's often a difference on the D OHLC prices
