The complicating comestic plot is Plot 3 above. Without it, the area where fills for the two EMA plots overlap is a pale brown. With plot 3 I was trying to overcome (hide) that. If one were to use just plot 1 & 2, everything is visible (grids etc, candles etc, at the price of an unintentional fill where the two overlap

Re above solution:

Looking at some other charts, the area fills hide some of the candles, which is not good. Can't think of a way around it. Darn

I couldn't resist a programming challenge, so there a way to plot to space between EMAs, but one might not find it satisfactory.

Plot 1 XAvgC9; plot style Area; Area fill color Green

Plot 2 XAvgC20; Plot style Area, Area FIll Color Red

Plot 3: Least(XAvgC9,XAvgC20);Plot Style Area; Area Color white or black - whatever the background color for your chart is;  Move Area Fill Opacity to the right extreme

The rub is that Plot 3 covers anything behind it. On the chart i'm playing with, that means the grid lines are hidden. I have a chart text box, and that is visible, as are the Note indicators on specific dates. I suspect that if you plot the three PCFs above first, other things you put on the chart will be visible. Anything above the Price and EMAs is visible as usual.

Hope this is helpful, and/or entertaining

Look at T2107 (Symbol) for % Stocks above 200 MA and T2107 for stocks above 40 MA. There are quite a few such market indicators in the T2xxx series

FWIW charts are printing fine for me, on latest V18

It is possible to have more than one chart in the layout, which can be different time frames, but it takes more screen space than two lines on one chart
