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...
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...
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...
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)
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...
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.
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.
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
This indicator uses RSI and adds it to +DI from the DMI indicator and plots the new value, when the value crosses the High line ==> Buy signal, close the trade based on EMA(20) value
