Natural Directional Index [CC]

cheatcountry Updated   
The Natural Directional Index was created by Jim Sloman and this is another indicator that I'm publishing from the collection of Ocean indicators. I want to make sure his legacy is covered by as many eyes as possible. This is his version of the directional index indicator but he uses his weighting method to use the square root of time and you can see that the signals are very smooth. Big thanks of course to @altcoinz and @tmac87 for helping me get the full source code and files for all of his work. This indicator captures the current trend and I have used my strong buy and sell signals to let you know the strength of the current trend. Darker colors are for strong signals and lighter colors are for normal ones. Buy when the line turns green and sell when it turns red.

Let me know if there are any other indicators you would like to see me publish!
Release Notes:
Changed to use wma as the default smoothing
