What is the DMI?
The DMI is an indicator that was developed by J. Welles Wilder in 1978. The Indicator was designed to identify in which direction the price is moving. This is done by comparing previous highs and lows and drawing 2 lines.
1. A Positive movement line
2. A Negative movement line
A third line can be added, which would be known as the line or . This can also be used to gauge the strength in which direction the market is moving.
When the Positive movement line (DI+) is above the Negative movement line (DI-) there is more upward pressure. Ofcourse visa versa, when the DI- is above the DI+ that would indicate more downwards pressure.
