I am trying make a label similar to the DTR vs ATR
but my parameters are different and i cant figure out how to put together im new to coding
My parameter:
past 500 bars atr - past 100 bars atr
and them show it in percentage to see level of increase or decrease in the candles range
essentially trying to get the volatility of the bars

input atr_length1 = 100;
def atr1 = atr( length = atr_length1 , averagetype = atr_type ).atr;

input atr_length2 = 500;
def atr2 = atr( length = atr_length2 , averagetype = atr_type ).atr;

def diff = atr2 - atr1;
def atr_per = round(100 * -diff/atr2, 1);

addlabel(1, "ATR500 " + atr2, color.yellow);
