Why do two charts of the same timeframe look different on the same platform?

A chart is formed from various price points plotted on a graph. The price points on a chart are derived from the live server, i.e., from the market watch ticks. The ticks on the marketwatch are considered for the formation of the chart.

But when a chart is opened midway, it gets plotted from the data points that are already stored on the data server. Since there is a difference between the broadcast of the live ticks and the number of stored ticks per second, there may be a slight difference in the way the chart appears. For example, the number of price points used to plot the graph while viewing it live may be 4 or 5 but when a new chart is opened, it may form from price points from the data server, which may have recorded only 1 tick.
