    Adding an instrument in a indicator turns SMA return to negative number

    When I add the VIX instrument to my indicator with Add ("VX 05-19", PeriodType.Tick, 100); Which is the same tick value as the primary instrument YM
    , the value from my YX average = SMA(rawDuration, fbPeriod); suddenly goes from a valid number to a negative number like -8975 after compiled successfully.

    Hello jkt1120, Thanks for your post.

    It sounds like the script is running into invalid data points between the RTY series and the VIX series. Comparing 100 tick VIX and RTY charts shows the VIX is sparse compared to the RTY. If the script accesses the secondary VIX series on every index of the primary series you should check that the series index is valid with IsValidDataPoint(). Printing out the values of the rawDuration series could also shed light on what's being calculated for the SMA result.

    I look forward to hearing of your results.
