Mashed together Chris Moody's ADX thing with his DMI thing.
So you can see trend strength + direction
green-ish = uptrend-ish//red-ish = downtrend-ish
Colors can be adjusted though.
below 10 = gray, not much going on
10 - 20 = light green/light red, could be the beginning o something
20 - 40 = bright green / bright red, something is going on
above 40 = dark...
I decided to make this formerly invite only script public (you can find the invite only version here
If you are part of the invite only you don't need to change scripts. I will push improvements first on the invite only script but in time it will come to this version as well.
I would love to know your ideas...
Directional Movement Oscillator is simply the difference of Di+ and Di- which helps traders to see the crosses of BUY/SELL signals more effectively.
Di+ crosses above Di- when indicator crosses above 0 which can be considered as a BUY signal.
and conversely Di+ crosses below Di- when indicator crosses below 0 which can be considered as a SELL...
A modified DMI, This turns the standard DMI into an Oscillator. The DMI cross signal is the same, but as an OSC you get the added benefits or finding divergences, etc. The added WIlder's Average Line (blue) can help you see if a short term trend is getting less interesting.
There is a nice writeup about a system that uses DMISTO here, which includes decent statistics:
I have not yet done any back testing on the system as a whole myself, but thought the DMISTO was an interesting indicator, so ported it over for those who might want to play...
Edit of the popular script by @TraderR0BERT
- horizontal colored areas, indication weak/medium/strong trend
- vertical bars, signaling trend/momentum changes
- DI+ vs DI- contraction/expansion histogram (to measure the DI volatility)
This indicator plots Dynamic Momentum Index indicator. The Dynamic Momentum
Index (DMI) was developed by Tushar Chande and Stanley Kroll. The indicator
is covered in detail in their book The New Technical Trader.
The DMI is identical to Welles Wilder`s Relative Strength Index except the
number of periods is variable rather than fixed. The...
This indicator helps determine the exit point of a play. Lots of green candles making you money? Got one red candle and now you're worried if this is the top? Check this indicator! A red arrow helps confirm that bearish pressure is rising while bull pressure is declining, and this may be your chance to exit. Works the opposite way for short plays, giving a...
This is a new indicator that make the normal DMI better
insread of the ADX I put a volume indicator that have been transformed to be on regular scripts
with this it much more easy to spot the true buy and sell points by the DMI
It is a normal Directional Movement Index, but instead of using lines for +DI and -DI it uses histogram and 4 colors. It also contains an horizontal line (default value @20) to indicate when a trend is confirmed or not.
Average Directional Index is a way to determine trend strength (and whether there is a trend). One of the caveats is when you have trendless conditions on a higher timeframe. You can get whipsaw conditions on the current timeframe in that case.
The purpose of this script is to put ADX into the context of a higher degree trend on a single indicator.
