  1. with the parametrs setting of 2/20, your displayed chart differ from my chart.. I dunno why its not gettng solved.

    E.g. Your chart on 16th April — SELL Signal after that 28th May BUY Signal.

    My Chart on 16th April — SELL Signal then on 11th May BUY Signal & again on 17th May SELL Signal and Finally on 28th May BUY..

    What to do…???

    And as per 15th Oct closing Daily chart — ATR at 6036.44

    Pls comment..
