Most basic plot is coming up wrong in Tradestation with Easy Language


I've been working on a way to draw high and low pivots and then mark them with trend lines, and as a strategy code it has been working successfully.

I wanted to code it as an indicator instead that plots the high and low pivots, but using the same calculations and plotting the values that successfully appeared as trendlines yielded a blank chart

I took it a step further and now I can't understand what I'm seeing. I made the simplest of new indicators, completely blank and the only formatting I did to it was to set it to be on Subgraph 1. The only line of code it contains is "Plot1(Close);"

But when added to the chart, it is not plotting anything remotely similar to the close - it seems to be arbitrarily putting whatever values it wants. My mind is burned out from trying to look at this, can anyone tell me what is wrong with either me or what I'm doing?

I wanted to attach a screenshot of what I'm getting for Plot1(Close); , but my post count is too low to allow adding links or images.

But please then visualize a set of ordinary candlesticks with a red plot line that is basically a few ticks above the high of each candle instead of at its close. It is also not plotting at the close of the prior one, or any nearby one, as though it were displaced.

I'd suggest to contact support for this because it's too hard to tell/guess what might be going on here.

I had a similar issue however, I am using Multicharts.
the problem was fixed by going to the study properties,
clicking on the Scaling tab and selecting "same as instrument" under scaling range.

I wouldn't know how to do it in TradeStation, but this might point you in the right direction.
