Hi Jan,

To delete the Moving Average, click on any visible element in the
chart (i.e. the price bars) and then press TAB until the words "Moving
Average" appears at the bottom left corner of the window AND none of
the visible MAs on your chart appear to be selected, then hit DEL.

(I'm still pondering your second question.)

Hope this helps,
