Should the "tools" be function of the time interval selected?

Should the "tools" be function of the time interval selected?
In other websites I found the values of the tools (moving average, stochastic, macd) may change with the time interval / zoom (1d, 5d, 1m, 3m, 1y...) selected. That does not happen on stock2own.com, theses values stay the same for any zoom selected ( which makes more sense to me).
Does anyone know what the right approach is? Should we expect them to stay the same?

Values for technical indicators are supposed to be persistent.

Values for technical indicators such as moving averages, stochastics and MACD are supposed to be the same no matter what date range you selected. I think the confusion is because some web sites automatically switch from daily charts to weekly charts based on the date range selected. Usually the price chart title is supposed to tell you what kind of prices was used.

On the Stock Analyzer page you can see daily price charts and all technical indicators are built based on daily numbers. There is also a Weekly Price chart available, which shows its own weekly moving average. As you can see, that weekly moving average may be quite different from a daily analog.
