Dear fellow Traders,
    this message is really more of a follow-up question than a response, but
as I thought it somehow belongs in the same category, here goes...

QUESTION: In a chart, how do I get rid of a single indicator that is not
visible on that chart?
    Case in Point: For stocks I have a standard template that includes a
200-day MA. If I open a young issue, eg. an option (that isn't 200 days old,
yet), before changing the template (it happens, you know), the MA doesn't

    Anyone knows how I can get rid of such an indicator without removing them

Another, quite unrelated, question - maybe rather something for the Equis

time periods, and a final, non-optimizing test must be run over a
'control-period' as well.
If I'm not mistaken, in MetaStock this can only be accomplished if one
A: runs the exploration,
B: completely unloads the chart,
C: reloads it manually selecting another time period,
D: starts over at A again.
    This is cumbersome to say the least. Does anyone know of a better
solution, or should we appeal to Equis to implement better handling of this
issue in version 7?

Thank you for your answer/s & Happy Trading. Yours
