DMI settings

The AT DMI indicator has an optional double EMA to filter trading signals.
If both the EMA slow and fast period are specified, long DMI trade signals will only be valid when the Fast EMA is above the Slow EMA and short DMI trade signals only when the Fast EMA is below the Slow EMA.
A contradiction between DMI and Double EMA will result in a ‘None’ signal.
If one or both of the EMA periods is zero, EMA trade signal filtering is disabled.
