The AT DMI indicator has an optional double EMA to filter trading signals.
If both the EMA slow and fast period are specified, long DMI trade signals will only be valid when the Fast EMA is above the Slow EMA and short DMI trade signals only when the Fast EMA is below the Slow EMA.
A contradiction between DMI and Double EMA will result in a ‘None’ signal.
If one or both of the EMA periods is zero, EMA trade signal filtering is disabled.
- When the signal becomes Strong
- When the ADX starts trending
- When the ADX stops trending
|Strong Long||When the ADX is rising and the +DI is above the -DI and also above the threshold|
|Weak Long||When the +DI is above the -DI and also above the threshold, but the ADX is not rising yet|
|None||When one of the other conditions aren’t valid, or when the EMA is specified and the DMI signal contradicts with the EMA signal|
|Weak Short||When the -DI is above the +DI and also above the threshold, but the ADX is not rising yet|
|Strong Short||When the ADX is rising and the -DI is above the +DI and also above the threshold|
