Adding horizontal dots as a lower study to dynamic MA?


New member
Hello, I currently have a simple 9 EMA average script which dynamically changes the color when price above average and when below. Simple. However, in addition to it I'd like to add horizontal dots as a lower study that change colors too (green / red or similar) Not sure how. Any help super appreciated! This is my current code:

input price = close;
input length = 9;
input displace = 0;
input showBreakoutSignals = no;

plot AvgExp = ExpAverage(price[-displace], length);
plot UpSignal = price crosses above AvgExp;
plot DownSignal = price crosses below AvgExp;



avgExp.AssignValueColor(if avgExp > avgExp[1] then color.light_green else Color.MAGENTA);

Here is an image of the dots I mean (the indicators on this image are unrelated to mine):

Here you go:

declare lower;

input price = close;
input length = 9;
input displace = 0;

def AvgExp = ExpAverage(price[-displace], length);

plot Value = 1;

Value.AssignValueColor(if avgExp > avgExp[1] then color.light_green else Color.MAGENTA);
