create area chart with green and red colors to indicate profit and loss

I have created area chart that that shows profit and loss % over time. I would like to show the loss (negative part) in red color and the profit ( positive part) in geen color.



i created 2 measures one for profit % and one for loss % 

positive p&l =
var pl=[p&l %]
var result= IF(pl>0 , pl,0)
return result
negative p&l =
var pl=[p&l %]
var result= IF(pl<0 , pl,0)
return result


when i added the measures in the chart it looked  like:



any idea on how to create the area chart with green/red colors instead of 1 color
