    Default Can someone confirm these E-mini prices?

    When I compare my intraday chart with the daily chart I am getting different prices. Can someone please have a look at their charts and let me know which ones are correct?

    Looking at the 3 minute chart for e-mini (Symbol ESH0) I have following highs and lows
    2nd March: H 1122.25 L 1115.25
    3rd March: H 1125.00 L 1115.50

    Comparing this to the Daily chart
    2nd March: H 1115.50 L 1104.25
    3rd March: H 11112.75 L 1112.75

    My data provider is IB and the charting software Market Analyst. As I am relatively new to this I am wondering if I need to use a different symbol to get EOD data as the intra day data seems to match what IB has in their platform.

    Thomas - those are big differences. Check your dates and times ... are you looking at the correct timezones etc. Also are you after the H/L for the full near-24 hour ES session or just the cash hours?

    Your intraday data is matched to your computers clock. Daily bars are matched to the close of the cash hours.

    Just have a look at the charts & numbers and they make sense.
