I think the caption of indicators in the chart is not so good. A lot is truncated, Volume is double.

The MAs i would abbr. "EMA", "SMA" and so on....
BB could be BB(xxx,yyy,zzz) where yyy is middle band what i miss (standard?)
And the Supertrend (right of Exponential....) has no caption at all.

Its a bit difficult to read it.

by the way: the properties of lines (horiz., vert., trend etc.) should be extended: not only solid and dotted, but .-.-.-.-.-.-.- ..-..-..-..-..-..-..-..- .................

Best Answer
You can update the caption of every indicator by right clicking on a pane then editing the formulas.

indicator = Bop();
Plot(indicator,"Balance Of Power",colorBlue,ChartLine,StyleSymbolNone);

You can change "Balance Of Power" by "Bop".

To make the change persistent in your formula list, right click on a formula, select "View formula" then update it.
