Why is there a difference in the LTP on the marketwatch and the chart?

The difference occurs when Heiken Ashi (HA) charts are opened. Even though they look like candle charts, they behave differently. In a candle chart - Open, High, Low, Close is the actual OHLC for that time period. In a Heiken Ashi chart - the OHLC is calculated as follows:

HA-Close = (Open(0) + High(0) + Low(0) + Close(0)) / 4

HA-Open = (HA-Open(-1) + HA-Close(-1)) / 2

HA-High = Maximum of the High(0), HA-Open(0) or HA-Close(0)

HA-Low = Minimum of the Low(0), HA-Open(0) or HA-Close(0)
