Have had no luck in determining "how" some of the lower studies are computed in the DTNIQ charts. DTNIQ phone support sent me here. Trying to experiment in Excel and can't match the DTNIQ charted values. For example, the ADX lower study plots values for ADX, DI+ and DI-. I've tried to approximate the plotted values in Excel for both the daily chart and the Minute/5-Minute chart and haven't come close.
Surely there is documentation somewhere that would describe "how" your application computes values for the chart. I'm using saved Time and Sales data as the source and calculating values in Excel from there. I've been all over the web on ADX, DI+, DI-, and exponential smoothing. I have not found any technique that will produce values similar to those the DTNIQ chart.
My goal is to approximate some of the technical indicators like ADX, RSI, etc. in Excel so I don't have to open a lot of DTNIQ chart windows. I'd be very happy with just the formulas and techniques for charting the ADX (and it's associated DI+ and DI- lines) to start. Once understood, I could move on to other indicators with less trouble.
Please help!! Thanks,
