Define a strong EMA trend and we'll code a label for you.
Awesome!thanks, let me go to the drawing board and think about how I will define each one. Im thinking I want to use 4 categories Strong Bearish Trend, Weak Bearish Trend, Weak Bullish Trend, and Strong Bullish Trend and the way those are defined are by certain EMAs above or below one another.
This is all I got so far. Looking to creat a trend bar label to show streanth of tread simulator to this:


#defines EMA values as random percentage.
#Will have to code the EMA inputs yourself to display useful data. Otherwise, color is just random.

def var = Round(Random(), 2);

#Labels turn lime if var is a certain percentage
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (var<=0.1) then color.lime else color.dark_red);
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.1<var && var <=0.2) then color.lime else;
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.2<var && var <=0.3) then color.lime else color.magenta);
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.3<var && var <=0.4) then color.lime else color.dark_orange);
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.4<var && var <=0.5) then color.lime else;
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.5<var && var <=0.6) then color.lime else;
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.6<var && var <=0.7) then color.lime else color.yellow);
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.7<var && var<=0.8) then color.lime else color.dark_green);
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.8<var && var<=0.9) then color.lime else color.dark_green);
AddLabel(yes, " ", if (0.9<var && var<=1) then color.lime else color.dark_green);
#Displays result value for debugging
AddLabel(yes, "var: " + (var), color.cyan);
it appears you want to calculate a % of something, to drive the colored labels, but i don't know what. can you describe it in more detail?
