Help with stochastic

Im trying to verify that my stochastic indicator is giving correct values, and it is not The price data is lining up correctly with my charts, which is reassuring, but the stochastic indicator is off so i feel i may have initialized it wrong. (yes, the stochastic periods im refrencing are the same). Would someone mind looking at how I set up my stochastic inidicator and see if there is someting that could be causing it to be off? Thank you very much for any and all help!

you are searching for stochD & stochk

self.Log("{0}, {1}, {2}, {3}".format(str(STO), str(STO1), str(STO2), str(STO3)))


Thanks! Big help! But that is still giving me values that are slightly off what I expect to see. For example, the price period i am refrencing on the charts has a stochastic value of "12.06" and in the Log it reports it as "11.62". Very very close but not the same.

 Do you know where that discrepancy is coming from?

can you check maybe not the first values the algo is giving you.

can you check the values after some time if they get more accurate? (just an idea)
