I have a table with various values. I want to have them aligned on decimal point and rounded to 4 significant digits. This seems to work fine except for the negative numbers. enter image description here

    It's because of input-signs and input-symbols. Commented Apr 13, 2018 at 10:55

    Why are you using input-signs = ,? Commented Apr 13, 2018 at 10:55

Here is a work-around, with some improvements: your table is too wide for standard pages, so I loaded geometry to have more sensible margins, reduced the value of \tabcolsep and replaced the obsolete pslatex with newtxtext,newtxmath, based on the times-clone TeX Gyre Termes I also loaded makecell which allows for line breaks in standard cells.
