Incorrect chart drawings caused by timestamps


I seek for an advice on how to solve the problem of incorrectly positioned text above/below price bars.

Most of the time text is placed correctly when Close price crosses supertrend line but when there are multiple candles with the same timestamp like 15:28 (and the next one also 15:28) the drawing is placed incorrectly. Seems EasyLanguage cannot distinguish miliseconds part of a candle timestamp

Platform used is OEC Trader

See the screenshot attached

Is there any way to solve this?

Thanks for help

// SuperTrend indicator 
ATRLength(3), ATRMult(1), MedLength(2), UpColor(green), DnColor(red); 


ATR = AvgTrueRange(ATRLength) * ATRMult; 
medi = Median((High+Low)/2, MedLength); 
up = medi + ATR; 
dn = medi - ATR; 

if Close > up[1] then trend = 1 else if Close < dn[1] then trend = -1;

if trend < 0 and trend[1] > 0 then flag=1 else flag=0; 
if trend > 0 and trend[1] < 0 then flagh = 1 else flagh = 0; 

if trend > 0 and dn < dn[1] then dn=dn[1];
if trend < 0 and up > up[1] then up=up[1]; 

if flag = 1 then up = medi + ATR;
if flagh = 1 then dn = medi - ATR; 

if trend = 1 then SuperTrend = dn else SuperTrend = up; 

if flag = 1 then begin
	downArrow = Text_New( Date, Time, High + 300 Point, "S");
	Text_SetColor(downArrow, DnColor);

if flagh = 1 then Begin
	upArrow = Text_New( Date, Time, Low - 300 Point, "B");
	Text_SetColor(upArrow, UpColor);

Plot1(SuperTrend, "SuperTrend");

in Tradestation or Multicharts you have the ability to draw text and draw them at a specific bar number. I am not sure if OEC does support this, as it goes beyond legacy EasyLanguage, but you might want to check if you can accomplish this with C# code within OEC.
