Transparency for indicators

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

Please compare both charts attached.
Which one it's easier to read? Less stressful to the eyes?
Both show identical studies.
The ability to create transparency options for studies, allowing us to create different coloring "channels" facilitate the chart reading when dealing with too many lines/trendlines.
In one of my charts I have 22 different lines, given by 3 studies.
8 of those lines could be removed by creating channels/bands since they report VWAP, yesterday's high and low, today's initial balance and today's open swing.
This is clearly seen on the attached images. By creating background transparencies we're able to "clean" a chart, making it more readable.
This is urgently needed.

i think all colors in the system particularly PLOTs should allow a transparency level (i hate to refer to the jerks, but TS implemented this a few yrs ago).

if not a transparency level, then at least implement a color called TRANSPARENT (TS also did this) - as it is now, i use color = black and i can see that crossing through other plots.
