We have calculated the directed flow v_1 and charge-odd directed flow Δ v_1 for pions and protons in Au+Au collisions at √(s_NN)=200GeV by solving the coupled Boltzmann-Maxwell equations self-consistently. Our numerical results show that v_1 for pions and protons are all negative and have similar behavior and magnitude. In contrast we find a quite different behavior in Δ v_1 for pions and protons. The difference lies in that Δ v_1 for protons mainly comes from pressure gradients of the medium,

Our results indicate that the effect of the electric field will slightly exceed that of the magnetic and lead to a small negative slope of Δ v_1 for pions. Our numerical results are consistent with experimental data and solve the sign puzzle in Δ v_1 for pions and protons in previous studies.
