This may not necessarily be a SF error, but I just noticed inconsistencies in how SMA(200) is calculated. For example, AMAT's MA(200) is currently $17.51 on SF. Stockcharts.com currently has it at $17.39 (link here). In ThinkorSwim on the charts tab it's consistent with SF ($17.51), but on the Prophet chart it's $17.39. Is this because SF calculates the moving averages off of the close while others such as stockcharts.com and the Prophet chart in TOS calculate it off of the adjusted close? AMAT pays out a quarterly $0.10 dividend. Just curious since this is the first time I've noticed different ways MA's are calculated across various sites and platforms.

Any insight on what causes the difference in how MAs are calculated?
