The problem is that orders are executed not exactly in right time(according to my strategy). You see on screenshort that Buy order executed even on wrong price (not on market price). I guess that it was executed on previous bar - but arrow is on the next bar - and time of order's execution.
I think reason is that I have some problems with history.
I want arrows to be drown in the bar, when order was executed.

The charting engine has problems identifying the bar that orders are associated with, sometimes. It seems to me that when you're doing bar trading, the arrow should intuitively follow the FillOnBarMode setting.

For example, if you place an order at the end of a bar, should the order arrow be placed on that bar, or on the (opening) of the next bar, where the order would actually be filled in real life?

Anyhow, the order arrows are usually offset by one bar, in bar trading. The timestamps on the orders are usually valid, but pay attention to the bar.BeginTime and bar.EndTime values and compare them to the order values, so that you understand what times are being shown everywhere.

If it helps any, in my debugging code (Console.WriteLine stuff), I always print out bar.EndTime first on each line, so I can have a consistent time reference.
