# AsPercent?

Is there a way to get AsPercent to show the value on all candlesticks, not just the current one?

Solution
This was just a sample code I got off the Thinkorswim site. I really don't need the Rate of Change. I am looking for the technical way to add "AsPercent" to an indicator and have it bring up percentages from previous candlesticks, the same way a stock RSI will give the values from previous candlesticks. I have a number of indicators in the works and thought it would be useful.
I do see what you are getting at. I will see if there is a work around.
Thanks.
See if this helps. The addchartbubble function can attach a bubble to each candle. If used in the uppen panel, you can use something like this

Ruby:
``````input length = 10;
def RateOfChange = (close - close[length]) / close[length];
def R = if rateofchange is greater than 0 then 1 else 0...``````
Here is a sample code...It will show the value for the last candlestick but not for any previous candlesticks.
Thanks

declare lower;
input length = 10;
def RateOfChange = (close - close[length]) / close[length];
plot R = if rateofchange is greater than 0 then 1 else 0;
AddLabel(yes, AsPercent((close - close[length]) / close[length]));

@Tony909 Can't you just plot rate of change without the if conditions? AddLabel is pretty much useless for what you're looking for.

If used in the lower panel, you can use something like this

``````declare lower;
input length = 10;
def RateOfChange = (close - close[length]) / close[length];
def R = if rateofchange is greater than 0 then 1 else 0;
plot zero = 0;
addchartbubble(!isnan(close),zero, AsPercent((close - close[length]) / close[length]));``````
