                                                   ADX di+ and Di- indicators incorrect


2019-07-27 16:03:04

i am using the following to plot all three on the chart and have found that they are at completely different levels as the same adx indicators on multiple other web sites and trading locations.
this is what i am using for this.

varAdx = adx(20);

varAdPlus = Plus_Di(20);
varAdMinus = Minus_Di(20);

Plot(varAdx, "ADX", colorBlack, chartline, StyleOwnScale);
Plot(varAdPlus, "DI+", colorGreen, chartline, StyleOwnScale);
Plot(varAdMinus, "DI-", colorRed, chartline, StyleOwnScale);

can someone shed some light on this?!? i had started using this indicator in my system with back testing and noticed when i went to apply it they did not match my trading platform.

Hi Matt,

When using the "StyleOwnScale" style, each plot will have its own scale. To plot them using the same scale, use another style such as StyleSymbolNone

this did help to make the chart appear correctly, but i have fount that the values still do not seem to match the values i am seeing elsewhere.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
