I have some code i found on here and I like the buy and sell signals but it connects each bar with a white line and makes the chart look a little uglier or there just too much going on for me does anyone know how to get rid of the line (code posted below)

declare upper;
input short_average = 5;
input medium_average = 10;
input long_average = 20;
input average_type = {default "SMA", "EMA"};
input showArrows = yes;

def MA1;
def MA2;
def MA3;
switch (average_type) {
case "SMA":
MA1 = Average(close, short_average);
MA2 = Average(close, medium_average);
MA3 = Average(close, long_average);
case "EMA":
MA1 = ExpAverage(close, short_average);
MA2 = ExpAverage(close, medium_average);
MA3 = ExpAverage(close, long_average);
}

# define e-signal and crossover point
def Eup = MA1 > MA2 && MA2 > MA3;
def Edn = MA1 < MA2 && MA2 < MA3;

def CrossUp = close > MA1 && Eup && !Eup[1];
def CrossDn = close < MA1 && Edn && !Edn[1];

# Define up and down signals
def higherHigh = close > Highest(Max(open, close), 3)[1];
def lowerLow = close < Lowest(Min(open, close), 3)[1];
def SignalUp = if (CrossUp && higherHigh)
then 1
else if (CrossUp[1] && higherHigh && !higherHigh[1])
then 1
else if (CrossUp[2] && higherHigh && !higherHigh[1] && !higherHigh[2])
then 1
else Double.NaN;
def SignalDn = if (CrossDn && lowerLow)
then 1
else if (CrossDn[1] && lowerLow && !lowerLow[1])
then 1
else if (CrossDn[2] && lowerLow && !lowerLow[1] && !lowerLow[2])
then 1
else Double.NaN;

# Plot the moving average lines
plot ln1 = MA1;
ln1.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(145, 210, 144));
ln1.SetLineWeight(2);
plot ln2 = MA2;
ln2.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(111, 183, 214));
ln2.SetLineWeight(2);
plot ln3 = MA3;
ln3.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(249, 140, 182));
ln3.SetLineWeight(2);

# Show an arrow
plot ArrowUp = if SignalUp and showArrows then low * 0.997 else Double.NaN;
ArrowUp.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_UP);
ArrowUp.SetLineWeight(4);
ArrowUp.SetDefaultColor(Color.YELLOW);
plot ArrowDn = if SignalDn and showArrows then high * 1.003 else Double.NaN;
ArrowDn.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_DOWN);
ArrowDn.SetLineWeight(4);
ArrowDn.SetDefaultColor(Color.CYAN);

# Add label for Eup or Edn
AddLabel(Eup, "E Up", CreateColor(134, 202, 93));
AddLabel(Edn, "E Dn", CreateColor(232, 148, 157));

# Calculate Meter Values
def sl1 = ma1 > ma1[1];
def sl2 = ma2 > ma2[1];
def sl3 = ma3 > ma3[1];
def p1 = close > ma1;
def p2 = close > ma2;
def p3 = close > ma3;
def u1 = 2 * (close > open);
def u2 = 2 * (close > high[1]);
def d1 = 2 * (close < open);
def d2 = 2 * (close < low[1]);

def UPstr = sl1 + sl2 + sl3 + p1 + p2 + p3 + u1 + u2;
def DNstr = !sl1 + !sl2 + !sl3 + !p1 +!p2 + !p3 + d1 + d2;

# Add Strength Meter
AddLabel(Eup or Edn, " ", if Eup and UPstr >= 3 then CreateColor(128, 199, 94) else if Edn and DNstr >= 3 then CreateColor(232, 143, 153) else CreateColor(177,177,166));
AddLabel(Eup or Edn, " ", if Eup and UPstr >= 6 then CreateColor(99, 197, 72) else if Edn and DNstr >= 6 then CreateColor(238, 123, 136) else CreateColor(177,177,166));
AddLabel(Eup or Edn, " ", if Eup and UPstr >= 8 then CreateColor(65, 195, 50) else if Edn and DNstr >= 8 then CreateColor(245, 101, 117) else CreateColor(177,177,166));
AddLabel(Eup or Edn, " ", if Eup and UPstr == 10 then CreateColor(41, 192, 36) else if Edn and DNstr == 10 then CreateColor(249, 81, 101) else CreateColor(177,177,166));

I do not have a line like you are getting from loading the above code.

I think you might not have deleted plot data = close; that is part of all new studies when you copied the code into your study.
