# Rounding Numbers in PineScript

In pine script there is a function round(x). It is very simple and allows you to round numbers only to the closest integer number.

``x = round(12.26) //  = 13``

This is a bit irritating because I very often have to round numbers to some decimal places and not an integer.
So I created 2 functions I use all the time and now sharing them with you.

• roundn – rounds the values in its first argument to the specified number of decimal places.
• roundtick – rounds the values to current symbol mintick

Here is the code for these functions:

``````roundn(x, n) =>
mult = 1
if n != 0
for i = 1 to abs(n)
mult := mult * 10

n >= 0 ? round(x * mult) / mult : round(x / mult) * mult

roundtick(x) =>
round(x / syminfo.mintick) * syminfo.mintick``````

Here is how it works:

• roundn(12.76543, 0) = 13
• roundn(12.76543, 2) = 12.77
• roundn(12.76543, -1) = 10
• roundtick(9090.2467) = 9090.25 (for bitcoin on bitstamp)

Here you can find an example of these functions use.
