You may add marker ‘>’ to your plot. The below command plots the line with markers.
If you specify only a marker symbol without a line style (as shown below), then plot displays only the markers with no line connecting them
You may refer the following documentation to add markers

This does not draw an arrowhead pointing in the direction of the line. It only adds a right-pointing triangle symbol marker at each datapoint.

See my function arrowed_line, which adds arrowheads to the data of the line plot.
