1) DM calculation depends on current period high price and previous period low price point.
- PDM = current high minus the previous high (called plus DM)
- MDM = current low minus the previous low (called minus DM)
- If PDM > MDM then MDM is set to zero
- If MDM > PDM then PDM is set to zero
- If current range lies within or is equal to the previous range then set both PDM and MDM to zero
2) Directional moment calculation.
PDI(n) = PDM(n) x 100 MDI(n) = MDM(n) x100
Where: n = Number of periods
ATR = Average True Range
3) (DMI) Directional movement index calculation.
DMI = (PDI – MDI)
(PDI + MDI)
4) calculation of average directional movement (ADX).
