Finance 200 Day MA Value Accuracy
I'm building an ETF portfolio and having trouble getting data from Yahoo. In particular, I'd like to use the 200 day moving average as a guide towards deciding what and when to buy.
However, the 200 day moving average figure I get from Yahoo appears to be different to the one on their own charts.
For example, querying Yahoo for IWXU.L here:
Gives (as of today) 2774.5901
Looking up the chart for IWXU.L here:
shows the 200 day MA around 3000 and at:
the 200 day MA figure for June 21st is given as 3292.98.
Data from FT.com confirms the above figure, so what is the 2774 number?
Thanks to anyone for helping with this,
