I experimentally created colors which looks good for me. They are in contrast
and BW printer friendly. I use brighter values for + and darker for -.
If I need more than 8 colors, I use them again.

There is piece of my perl code with HEX RGB values:

        my @colorsin = (
        my @colorsout = (

PS. You can use Color scheme generator for experimenting with colors:
