Adding horizontal dots as a lower study to dynamic MA?

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:


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;

UpSignal.SetHiding(!showBreakoutSignals);
DownSignal.SetHiding(!showBreakoutSignals);

AvgExp.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(1));
UpSignal.SetDefaultColor(Color.UPTICK);
UpSignal.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_UP);
DownSignal.SetDefaultColor(Color.DOWNTICK);
DownSignal.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_DOWN);

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:

Code:
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);
Value.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.LINE_VS_POINTS);

How would you make this not plot the dots into the future?
Meaning not plots dots to the right of the last bar on the chart.

Thanks,

The isnan(close) will take care of that as follows:

plot Value = if isnan(close) then double.nan else 1;

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

Thanks for the help on this. I have 1 more question about this code. What can you put in the code that will move the dots to different areas in the indicator window?
Like now it is in the middle of the indicator window. What do you add to the code to put it in another location of that window? Like to the top or to the bottom etc?

Thanks,

that's the way it works. 1 plotted line will be centered.
if you want to move a plot up, add another plot at a lower level. like plot z = -5;

but, you are asking the wrong question.
why do you want to move it?
what do you really want to see?
do you want to add another plot?

Yes, that worked for what I needed. I wanted to be able to have more than one plot in an indicator window.

Seems I was too quick to reply back on this. It worked in 2 separate indicator windows, but when I put them both in the same indicator window they just plotted over each other in the center of the indicator window?
What I am looking for is a way to plot lets say:
The 10 mov avg. The 20 mov avg. and the 30 mov avg. All in one indicator window using Dots like the indicator on this page and be able to put them anywhere in the indicator window spaced apart the distance I want.

Thanks again,
