I don't think it's the indicator, I noticed the same thing a couple of times today.

Attached file shows 2 bars at 12:00

Extra info-
This only happens with live data, when I close and reload the workspace or refresh with CTRL-R they go away. Also all time based charts (1, 2, 5 and 30 min) all showed a duplicate bar at the same time.

Hi Guys,

This is a known problem. The reason why duplicate bars appear is that MultiCharts force closes the bars - this is necessary for autotrading. There is also a 3-second timeout. Duplicate bars appear because the local clock and the server time are often desynchronized.

We are now working on a number of changes in the program's logic which will eliminate this problem in the next Beta 3 and the release.
