Hello Experts

Can i be advised with the code on
  • Start the PLOT line from 0 price
  • Create 100 plots using a LOOP
  • The difference between lines to be X based on INPUT.

Thanks

Not possible in thinkscript the way you describe for a couple reasons.
-No arrays
-There isn't a true LOOP function in thinkscript, FOLD is as close as you could get.
-Thinkscript is not a traditional programming language, it's designed for primarily plotting on a graph.

It can be done though,
In, order to do what you want, one would have to define 100 separate plots, X amount apart.

to add to what svanoy said,
if you want 100 lines, you will need 100 plot variables and 100 sets of supporting formulas.

fold loops are tied to 1 variable, and can only create 1 number. they can't include plot commands.

there is a function called script, that creates subroutines within the study. but it has similar limitations as fold.
it can't draw objects. it generates numbers as outputs.
it uses 1 or more plots, but not to draw, but to send a number back to the command line, that called the subscript.
