ADX

ADX

Another indicator that might grasp your attention is ADX, the trend strength indicator.

The MT4 indicator automatically includes 3 lines:

-           Average Directional Index (ADX) itself (thick yellow line)

-           Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) (green line) - difference between two consecutive highs

-           Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) (red line) - difference between two consecutive lows

How to interpret:

+DI and -DI define the directional movement. In general, the bulls prevail when +DI is greater than - DI, while the bears have the edge when -DI is greater. Crosses of +DI and -DI make a trading system in combination with ADX.

ADX (yellow line) is used to determine if the currency pair is trending or not. A strong trend is in place when ADX is above 25 and there is no trend when ADX is below 20. There appears to be a gray zone between 20 and 25.

“Buy” signal occurs when +DI crosses above -DI (ADX must be above 25). Stop-loss is usually put at the low of the signal day. The buy signal remains in force as long as this low holds, even if +DI crosses back below - DI.

And vice versa, “sell” signal occurs when -DI crosses above +DI (ADX must be above 25). The high of the signal day becomes the initial stop-loss.
