This script shows the difference between a future's continuous current contract (e. g. CL1!) and the continuous next contract (e. g. CL2!). Normally, the next contract is more expensive ("Contango" - shown in green). If the next contract is cheaper, the difference is negative ("Backwardation" - shown in red).

Chart Timeframe Detection - Function
A small and effective function to detect the current chart timeframe in minutes.
It can be used to further detect a specific chart timeframe (a daily timeframe or even a 16h39m timeframe).
The result is returned as integer.
