About DMI
Can refer to Investopedia for general understanding.
Applications of DMI in this strategy:
- Assumes uptrend when DI+ is above DI- (when green DI+ lines above red DI-), vice versa for downtrend. This is checked in two different timeframes that can be set by user in settings.
- DX is ignored, it doesn't give a direction of the trend. But if DX was applied, it would be a good indicator for quantifying the strength of uptrend/downtrend. This measurement would typically be read along a threshold (i.e. if below 20, then market is likely consolidating). All of these have been commented out (ignored by pinescript's interpreter via //) in the codes, as said; we are not using DX for sake of simplicity.

To make the chart look cleaner, DMI plots have been simplified to just down/up arrows placed at bottom of the chart.
Referring to the example chart:
- Green arrows : when DI+ > DI- for both timeframes, implies uptrend
- Red arrows: other way around (DI+ < DI-), implies downtrend
Release Notes: Ensures non-repainting by ignoring developing bars from MTFs.
