I am new to this trying to learn thinkscript. I have a indicator that I have set up and it seems to work fine when it does plot but when I am looking back I notice multiple points where all the conditions for the indicator were met and it did not plot for some reason can someone please help let me know what is going on?

This is for /ES on a 4500t chart.

i posted the script I am using and a picture of the chart with the spots circled where i think it should show up and does not.

Thanks in advance.

the script:

input FastMA = 20;
input SlowMA = 50;
input Leadlow= -0.95;
input Sinelow = -0.95;
input Stochlow = 20;
input leadhigh = 0.95;
input sinehigh = 0.95;
input stochhigh = 80;

# long conditions

Def uptrend = MovAvgExponential("length" = fastma) is greater than Movexponential("length" = slowma);
def stochlong = StochasticFull("k period" = 3, "d period" = 14)."fullk" <= stochlow;
def sinelong = MESASineWave("price" = open)."sine wave" < sinelow;
def leadlong = MESASineWave("price" = open)."lead wave" < leadlow;
def wavelong = sinelong or lead long;

# short conditions

def downtrend = MovAvgExponential("length" = Fastma) is less than Movexponential("length" = slowma);
def stochshort = StochasticFull("k period" = 3, "d period" = 14)."FullK" >= stochhigh;
def sineshort = MESASineWave("price" = open)."sine wave" > sinehigh;
def leadshort = MESASineWave("price" = open)."lead wave" > leadhigh;
def waveshort = sineshort or leadshort;

# plots

plot ArrowUp = if uptrend and stochlong and wavelong then 1 else double.nan;
plot ArrowDown = if downtrend and stochshort and waveshort then 1 else double.nan;

plot longstop = if arrowup then (close - 3) else Double.NaN;
plot longprofit = if arrowup then (close + 2) else Double.NaN;
plot shortstop = if arrowdown then (close + 3) else Double.NaN;
plot shortprofit = if arrowdown then (close - 2) else Double.NaN;
