Jeff,
Thank you very much - addTA really does what I need. However, there's
a wrinkle - addTA somehow does not work inside a function! Code
sample attached:
ix<-as.Date('2009-05-01')+seq(0:19)
x<-sin(1:20)
y<-cos(1:20)
dat_<-xts(cbind(x,y),order.by=ix)
# You see both lines:
lineChart(dat_$x)
addTA(dat_$y,on=1,col='red')
z <- function(a) {
lineChart(a[,1],theme='white')
addTA(a[,2],on=1,col='blue') # <--- this one will not be displayed
}
# You see only one line:
z(dat_)
