Can't speak for TS having never used it, but bar magnifier takes minute data and will correctly identify the OHLC ordering deriving it from tick data, so your executions and profit targets/stop losses are accurate, which without this they wouldn't be most likely, especially on larger bars.

It does it behind the scenes, no special programming needed.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
