Hello,

I have noticed that using the set command has the un-wanted (in my case) effect of plotting the variable like, if I'm setting a variable to hold the calculated market-capitalization of a stock, such market-capitalization variable will be added to the resulting chart. I just wanted it for internal calculations, not to draw it in my chart.

Question is, is there a way to avoid plotting (drawing) a variable we are creating via the set command?

Thank you in advance,
PB

Setting a variable does not automatically draw it on the chart. I'm guessing you're using the variable later in the filter, and that's what causes it to draw. To disable drawing of a given indicator or variable use this line:

do not draw variable

Example of setting variables not drawing on chart:

Fetcher[
symlist(AAPL)

set{soAAPL,ind(AAPL,shares outstanding)}
set{clAAPL,ind(AAPL,close)}
set{mcAAPL,soAAPL * clAAPL}

add column mcAAPL {Market Cap}
]
