Need help with XAverage and so on...

Hi all,

I program XAverage in my TradeStation. However, some strange things happened:
(1) XAverage(Close, 3) is not what the chart shows EMA(3).
(2) Second, XAverage(Close,3)[1] gives me "0", also for [2][3]...

In addition, similar things happen when I want to code for some indicators turning up or turning down:
Average(ADX(25), 3) is ok, but Average(ADX(25), 3)[1] is 0.

I have some training in programing, but I am new to TradeStation syntax.

Can you give me some help insights?

Thank you very much!

I am not exactly sure what is happening on your end, but this code
Plot1(XAverage(Close, 3));
Plot2(XAverage(Close, 3)[1]);
produces two EMAs where the second one is returning the previous bar's value from the first XAverage.

What do you mean with " XAverage(Close, 3) is not what the chart shows EMA(3)."?
