Old RAF code post by solaris on Sep 17, 2020

I would like to know if it's possible to move a little be further from the top of the arrow the label in the code posted by solaris on sept 17, 2020 about the "Old Ready Aim Fire" code?

I would like to move the label to the bottom of the arrow if it's possible?

I'm not familiar with this code and you made me curious. Those chart bubbles definitely dominate the entire UI.

In case you aren't aware, these signals will always show up one candle later than they seem. See the FT[-1] on line 133 in the code below? That's telling it to look into the future one candle to decide if it should show the arrow or not. That makes the indicator look a bit smarter than it actually is. On a daily chart, if there's a signal on Tuesday it won't tell you until Wednesday because it needs Wednesday's data to make that decision.

Let's make the chart bubbles narrower. We really don't need it to say "Sell signal Price= $" on every bubble. We'll remove all that extra text. And then we'll adjust the vertical position to offset a little bit from the tips of the arrows.

In your version of the code, find the lines at or near line numbers 113 and 133 starting with AddChartBubble and replace with these. For me it's 113 and 133 but if you have any extra blank lines or made any changes your code be different.

Ruby:
# 113
AddChartBubble(BuySignal, FT-.5, AsPrice(close), Color.LIGHT_GREEN, no);

# 133
AddChartBubble(FT[-1] < FT and FT > FT[1], FT+.5, AsPrice(close), Color.CYAN, yes);
