Friends,

I am kind of new with thinkscript and look for experts to help on sharing few lines of code with what I am looking for.

I need a bubble to show the difference between candle close and the EMA lines on the top left corner (ref to the attached image)

this has 4 averages. if the length is > 1 then they will be evaluated

Code:
``````# price_diff_emas_00

# Show the difference between candle close and the EMA lines

def na = double.nan;
def bn = barnumber();

# last bar  ( most recent)
#def lastbar = !isnan(close[0]) and isnan(close[-1]);

def price = close;

input ma1_len = 8;

Appreciate all your help @halcyonguy Can this be made into a watchlist

Appreciate all your help @halcyonguy Can this be made into a watchlist

yes, just have to reduce the data displayed so it will fit in a column

for a watchlist, i make a lower study , then change it to be a column study

this is a lower for studying data

Code:
``````# price_diff_emas_00_lower

# Show the difference between candle close and the EMA lines

declare lower;

Awesome bruh !! This is great stuff.

how easy it is to add RSI label so as to show the RSI value (14 days) for this candle?

also just realized it shows only for the last candle. can we make it dynamic so as to show on any candle?
