Heyo, first post here.

Does anyone know why the price in the terminal isn't the same as the chart, is this from the spread or something else? The take profit is not being triggered by Oanda (demo account), you can see it visually.

If the prices don't normally match up it's kind of useless using the chart...?

Thanks if anyone can help.

MT uses bid price to generate charts. So it will always be out depending on what you're looking at, at least the spread, half the spread or no spread.

Oanda displays more accurate charts in terms of highs and lows, but their random spreads might throw you.

Nature of the game mate.
