DeMarker Indicator for ThinkorSwim


Staff member
Demarker is an indicator similar to DM+ developed by Welles Wilder. The DM+ (a part of Directional Movement System which includes both DM+ and DM- indicators) indicator helps determine if a security is "trending." The differences between the indicators are in the somewhat different calculation methods.

If the indicator value is over 0.5, the period is suited for buying, if less - for selling. The farther is the value from 0.5, the stronger are the trend dynamics. If the value is within 0.5, the trend is either flattening or going to revert.
