What code did you use, what was the result, what should it have been?

EA runs at the the first tick of new bar to calculate low value of previous bar for multiple symbol.
Sometimes, issue arise that at current bar EA reads Low[2] instead of Low[1]  of some symbol.

When the first tick of a new bar comes on the chart that the EA is attached, the first tick of a new bar for another symbol may not have arrived yet. So your code will return Low[1] which would be the same as low[2] 1 tick later.

You could check the bar open time to make sure that you are getting the correct value.
