This SIGN=(,,+,-) denotes that after EDITING you want to have a + sign for positive values & a - sign for negative values, at TRAILING of record.

Check manual for more info on same.

For DFSORT, the syntax for the SIGNS parameter is

SIGNS=(lp,ln,tp,tn)

where lp specifies the leading positive sign, ln specifies the leading negative sign, tp specifies the trailing positive sign and tn specifies the trailing negative sign.

For:

EDIT=(**II,TTT,TTXS),SIGNS=(,,+,-))

The S in EDIT indicates a trailing sign. The + in SIGNS is the trailing positive sign and the - is the trailing negative sign. Since there's no leading sign in the edit mask, the leading positive and negative signs are skipped by specifying commas for them.
