# Study Plotting Under Every Bar

#### bottomphishing

##### New member
Having trouble with my code this section is plotting under every bar no matter the time frame any ideas?:

plot s1 = if IsNaN(currentPrice) then Double.NaN else (currentPrice - (currentPrice * RiskPercent));
s1.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
s1.SetDefaultColor(Color.PINK);

Code:
``````# Position Size Calculator based on max % account risk with variable position riskPercent %

input Max_Percent = 0.25;
input price = close;
input Extend_to_right = yes;

def netliq = GetNetLiq();

## Risk of Portfolio

def twoperc = netliq * (Max_Percent / 100);
AddLabel(yes, Max_Percent + "% ActRisk " + AsDollars(twoperc), Color.CYAN);

input RiskPercent = .05 ;

def dollarRisk = (currentPrice * RiskPercent);

def stopPrice = (currentPrice - dollarRisk);
def SHAREStoBUY = twoperc / (currentPrice - stopPrice);

input showlabel = yes;

AddLabel (yes, AsPercent(RiskPercent) + " Risk " + AsDollars (currentPrice - (currentPrice * RiskPercent)), Color.CYAN);

So I need it to test of the current bar is close or not to calculate on the current open bar?
This test determining the cruuent bar,IsNaN(close[-1]), will limit the plot to the current bar. I added s1ext to extend the line to the right edge, but you can limit it to just the current bar by substituting (currentPrice - (currentPrice * RiskPercent)) for s1ext. You can derive other similar tests to limit the plot.

Ruby:
``````def s1ext = if IsNaN(close) then s1ext[1] else (currentPrice - (currentPrice * RiskPercent));
plot s1   = if IsNaN(close[-1]) then s1ext else Double.NaN;``````
you didn't say what you want to have happen, so i can't tell you how to get there.
that plot statement has 1 condition
...if IsNaN(currentPrice) then Double.NaN
to test if close is not a valid price. if close has a number, then it plots, so it plots on all the bars, and not after the last bar.
if you want it to plot on only some of the bars, you will need a formula that tests for some condition.

@bottomphishing @SleepyZ I'm having some issues with this, maybe you can shed some light or provide an updated version? I can't seem to get any of the plot lines to work except for s1. Everything else just bottoms out to 0 because the stop price always remains at \$0.

For some stocks it doesn't show anything except s1.

For other stocks it draws the other lines at the far left.

Below is the code:

def currentPrice = close;
def dollarRisk = (currentPrice * RiskPercent);

def stopPrice = (currentPrice - dollarRisk);

This study seems to populate when you actually enter a trade as it uses getaverageprice(), which is the price when a trade is entered. So go to simulated trading (paper trading versioon of TOS) and enter a trade and see if it works then.
