SPY label on chart?


New member
What I would like is simply a label showing me on any chart if the SPY is green or red during open session. Is this possible? Ideally, the label would read SPY and the background would be green/red.

What I'm after is a label that shows me green on the day. For example, the lable in the screenshot attached should be green as spy is above its open (green line). How may I adjust this code to suit?

# Market Breath Ratios
# Paris (based on an earlier idea from ESP)

def UVOL   = close(“$UVOL”);
def DVOL   = close(“$DVOL”);

def UVOLD  = close(“$UVOLI”);
def DVOLD  = close(“$DVOLI”);

def UVOLS  = close(“$UVOLSP”);
def DVOLS  = close(“$DVOLSP”);

def UVOLN  = close(“$UVOL/Q”);
def DVOLN  = close(“$DVOL/Q”);

def UVOLR  = close(“$UVOLRL”);
def DVOLR  = close(“$DVOLRL”);

def SPYRatio =  if (UVOLS >= DVOLS) then (UVOLS / DVOLS) else -(DVOLS / UVOLS);
AddLabel(yes, "S&P500: " + Concat(Round(SPYRatio, 2), ” :1”), if SPYRatio >= 0 then Color.UPTICK else Color.DOWNTICK);

def DJIRatio =  if (UVOLD >= DVOLD) then (UVOLD / DVOLD) else -(DVOLD / UVOLD);
AddLabel(yes, "DJI: " + Concat(Round(DJIRatio, 2), ” :1”), if DJIRatio >= 0 then Color.UPTICK else Color.DOWNTICK);

def NDXRatio =  if (UVOLN >= DVOLN) then (UVOLN / DVOLN) else -(DVOLN / UVOLN);
AddLabel(yes, "QQQ: " + Concat(Round(NDXRatio, 2), ” :1”), if NDXRatio >= 0 then Color.UPTICK else Color.DOWNTICK);

def RUTRatio =  if (UVOLR >= DVOLR) then (UVOLR / DVOLR) else -(DVOLR / UVOLR);
AddLabel(yes, "R2000: " + Concat(Round(RUTRatio, 2), ” :1”), if RUTRatio >= 0 then Color.UPTICK else Color.DOWNTICK);

def NYSERatio =  if (UVOL >= DVOL) then (UVOL / DVOL) else -(DVOL / UVOL);
AddLabel(yes, "NYSE: " + Concat(Round(NYSERatio, 2), ” :1”), if NYSERatio >= 0 then Color.UPTICK else Color.DOWNTICK);
