When I test my EA in different time frames, the chart that is produced does not have the same set of indicators. I have a template created that has MACD, Bollinger Bands and moving averages. When I run my EA in M5 or H1 time frame, only the indicators I have in my template are displayed. When I run the EA in H4 time frame, I get a 2nd MACD indicator. I am certain that there is something about how to use templates for an EA that I am confused about. Any help would be appreciated.

H1 output - https://www.mql5.com/en/charts/100924/gbpusd-h1-metaquotes-software-corp
Actually, on H1 you already have twice MACD indicator in the same sub-window.
When you apply your template on a new chart, what indicators are displayed ?
I updated my template, such that only 1 MACD is shown. I then restarted MT5 and ran the EA on H4 and still got the un-wanted MACD
before applying template
after applying template
Can you please use the link button, when you post link (Ctrl-Alt-L). So we have only to click on it.
I saved 'DEFAULT.tpl' as 'tester.tpl' and 'MACD 1 cross after MACD 15 30 plus cross.tpl'
1 ran 'MACD 1 cross after MACD 15 30 plus cross' EA on H4 timeframe
2 applied 'MACD 1 cross after MACD 15 30 plus cross' template
The first is not a MACD chart.
I don't understand how you obtain this. Maybe, best thing to do is delete your templates, and create a new one.
