So, i have been trying to code mcclellan oscillator in quantconnect. Here is what the formula looks like, but i dont know why does quant connect show discrepancy in data. Is it that i can intrepreting advancing and declining stocks incorrect?

In my initialization section:

``` if MO_QC500: self.SetUniverseSelection(QC500UniverseSelectionModel()) else: self.AddUniverse(self.CoarseSelectionFunction,self.FineSelectionFunction)```

I made the following code on OnData section.

``` if self.Time.microsecond == 0 and self.Time.second == 0: # Update McClellan Oscillator self.OnDataMO(slice)``````def OnDataMO(self, slice): """Event handler for new McClellan Oscillator data.""" # Loop through universe and count advances/declines up = 0 down = 0 # Loop through all stocks in universe for stock in slice.Keys: # Use try/except block to handle possible future data in slice try: if slice.Bars[stock].Close > slice.Bars[stock].Open: up += 1 elif slice.Bars[stock].Close < slice.Bars[stock].Open: down += 1 else: up += .5 down += .5 # if self.Time.microsecond == 0 and self.Time.minute == 0 and 'AAPL' in str(stock): # self.Debug('{} {} O:{} C:{} up:{} down:{}'.format(str(self.Time),str(stock),slice.Bars[stock].Open,slice.Bars[stock].Close,up,down)) except: continue # Check for invalid calculation. When writing this comment, each minute would contain # at least 490 stocks. However, if the market does not produce an uptick or downtick # we would have to terminate MO calculation. if up + down < 10: #self.Log('invalid MO calculation') return # Calculate if valid calculation elif up != 0 or down != 0: # Calculate ad and append it to list net_advances = up-down ```

The only reason i did add .5 to unchanged tick stocks is to test different concepts downstream. Then i calculated EMA 19 and EMA 39 - something like as follows:

``` if self.ad_fast_ema: prev_ema = self.ad_fast_ema multiplier = 2.0 / (AD_FAST + 1) self.ad_fast_ema = (net_advances - prev_ema) * multiplier + prev_ema # Check for enough data for first calculation elif len(self.ad_list) >= AD_FAST: self.ad_fast_ema = self.ad_list[-1] / AD_FAST```

The part i am questioning is up ticks vs down ticks calculation.

I have been comparing upticks vs downticks with TOS,QC500 and QCNYSE.  Here is Advance Decline [ \$ADVN ] \$DECN in TOS, 1 min data from 26th of July.

Each entries correspond from 9:30 AM EST Market Open, 1 minute data.In QC however, i am seeing bunch of stocks with no change in ticks.Here is what QC NYSE version looks like when .5 is added to advance and declines for unchanged issues: ```QC NYSE Advances Declines Net Advances 19-day EMA 39-day EMA McClellan Oscillator 1 1165 1102 63 2 1151.5 1144.5 7 3 1177.5 1137.5 40 4 1158 1181 -23 5 1197 1155 42 6 1079 1294 -215 7 1208 1169 39 8 998.5 1379.5 -381 9 933.5 1445.5 -512 10 1267 1116 151 11 1426 959 467 12 1278.5 1111.5 167 13 1253.5 1136.5 117 14 1178 1212 -34 15 976 1416 -440 16 985.5 1408.5 -423 17 1114 1282 -168 18 1410 990 420 19 1240 1161 79 -32 20 1208.5 1192.5 16 -27 21 1363 1039 324 8 22 1356.5 1045.5 311 38 23 1278 1125 153 50 24 1250.5 1153.5 97 55 25 1187.5 1216.5 -29 46 26 1088 1317 -229 19 27 1151 1254 -103 7 28 1147 1259 -112 -5 29 1091.5 1315.5 -224 -27 30 1265 1143 122 -12 31 1114 1295 -181 -29 32 1269.5 1140.5 129 -13 33 1019.5 1391.5 -372 -49 34 1147 1264 -117 -56 35 1266 1145 121 -38 36 1229.5 1181.5 48 -30 37 1042.5 1369.5 -327 -59 38 1215 1197 18 -52 39 1166.5 1245.5 -79 -54 -27 -28 40 1283.5 1128.5 155 -33 -18 -16 41 1342 1070 272 -3 -3 0 42 1163.5 1248.5 -85 -11 -7 -4 ```

It is my understanding that slice.Bars[stock].Close > slice.Bars[stock].Open captures close and open prices

for the bar. Could this be a data related issue or the way i intrepret slice.Bars object?

self.UniverseSettings.Resolution = Resolution.Minute is what i have set in program.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
