NT vs TOS, why is candles size,shape,formation different between these platforms?

Pics attached ,I started using NT today and had a horrible day trading, reviewing tonight I figured out why. My prior platform ThinkorSwim I was used to their charts. Please explain why on a identical 3200Tick chart with bollegier bands set identical why is there a difference in candlestick size shape and formation along with a difference in how candles pierce bollengiers bands. Please advise because this doesn't make sense to me

Who is the data provider via NinjaTrader?

Some data providers filter tick data, or aggregate it, so that you don't get every single tick. The most popular is Interactive Brokers, as an example, who only sends data every 100ms if I recall correctly.

Another explanation would be that with tick based charts (tick, volume, range, renko, etc) the precise start bar will effect all remaining bars on the chart. Even using the same platform (ie: NinjaTrader), chart 'A' can be different than chart 'B' even if they are both "1500 tick" if chart A and B have different lookback periods or start date/times.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

You can't compare ThinkOrSwim to Rithmic. To try to understand just a little bit, look here:
