dataset$ema12 <- EMA (dataset$Close,12)
dataset$ema26 <- EMA (dataset$Close,26)
dataset$MACD_fast <- dataset$ema26 - dataset$ema12
dataset$MACD_slow <- EMA(dataset$MACD_fast,9)

dataset$MACD_hist <- dataset$MACD_fast - dataset$MACD_slow  # This line doesnt

But... if I does work if I do the following

dataset$MACDfast <- dataset$ema26 - dataset$ema12
dataset$MACDslow <- EMA(dataset$MACDfast,9)
dataset$MACDhist <- dataset$MACDfast - dataset$MACDslow

Something seems wrong if you have an underscore in the dataname.  I think
this is a valid name and shouldnt need to be escaped inside of "".
