TOS vs NT tick data

Hi guys,

I have a custom indicator in TOS that I replicated in NT. Even if they seem to be 1:1, I get totally different values.
This ES indicator is meant to work with tick data and as little I managed to find anywhere, it seems like I need to also have exactly the same data provider. I am just very surprised that TOS and NT tick data differ so much that the indicator is not even close.
Anybody ever experienced the same problem when trying to test in NT? Could tick data really differ this much?

If you want the tick charts to line up perfectly with Thinkorswim you have to match the sessions that Thinkorswim uses.

Example settings I use for the ES on NT7
