I don't know if this is a bug, or if an intentional change was made to the way that ABS works, but I just realized that the plus and minus mathematical operators (+ -) do not work with the ABS() function.

Using the following code...

Fetcher[/* Get average size of candlestick */
set{bodysize, ABS(open - close)}

show stocks
add column bodysize{Body}
]



The value being returned in the AVGBody column is incorrect. In order to get correct results, I am having to write out the operator in word form, such as in...

Fetcher[/* Get average size of candlestick */
set{bodysize, ABS(open minus close)}

show stocks
add column bodysize{Body}
]
