Post subject:  AC indicator in Visual JForex outputs positive and negative values differently from Charts

Hi,
I think I've found a problem here. Here's what happens.

In the charts the positive value, changes when the AC value increases, and has a green bar. Like wise when the value decreases the negative value decreases, and is displayed by a red bar. So its possible to have red and green bars on both sides of the zero line.

However the values given out in the Visual Jforex Indicator, do not do this.
Positive values are output if above zero line.
Negative values are output if below zero line.

It's easy to demonstrate in action, just see attached file and run on historical data. You can see how the behaviour of the indicator changes if you scroll to the left.

Hi,

I assume that you're referring to the current bar being under construction for the indicator AC. If so, it is indeed moving along with the current candle til it's completed and new one is formed but I never noticed/seen red and green bars on both ways of the zero for the AC or Awesome indicators neither in Jforex platform nor in Visual Jforex Historical tester.
Once the new candle is created, the AC bar will start wih a given colors and then gets updated and may turn to the other side of the zero. It is the same in VJF, the only particularity is that once it changes its color the previous value will remain saved at the level of the variable.

Hope this clear enough
Don't hesitate to attach a screenshot for more details
