I have developed color coded watchlist columns which can be very helpful, especially when looking at a gap scan on the left while tracking charts on the right. These are color coded based on values. The columns eliminate all those extra zeros at the end and make it easy to spot big values. The codes are listed below. Please pass it on!
Cyan - highest
Red - 2nd highest
Green - 3rd highest
Yellow - lowest
C1 – <20, 20-40, >40
CO – <0, 0-20, 20-40, >40
L1 – 1-5, 5-10, >10
RV1 – 0-5, 5-20, >20
C1
#Pct Change from Yesterday Close
def AP = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
def y = close(period = AP)[1];
def x = Round(100*((close/y)-1),1);
plot z=x;
z.assignValueColor(if z>=40 then color.CYAN else if z>=20 then createcolor(255,153,153) else createcolor(0,215,0));
CO
#Percent change from open
plot x = Round(100*((close/open)-1),1);
x.assignValueColor( if x >=40 then color.CYAN else if x>=20 then createcolor(255,153,153) else if x>=0 then createcolor(0,215,0) else color.YELLOW);
L1
#Rounded Last
def L = Round(close,2);
plot x = L;
x.assignValueColor(if x>=10 then color.CYAN else if x>=5 then createcolor(255,153,153) else createcolor(0,215,0));
RV1
#Relative Volume
def x = Average(volume, 60)[1];
def v = volume;
plot r = Round((v/x),1);
r.assignValueColor(if r >= 20 then color.CYAN else if r>=5 then createcolor(255,153,153) else createcolor(0,215,0));
