ADX indicator

ADX Scalping Trading Strategy

The Average Directional Index, or ADX, is the trend strength indicator. It helps judge how strong a trend is. The indicator is based on a moving average of price range expansion over a given period of time. The indicator automatically includes three lines:

▪️ ADX itself. Its values range from 0 to 100. This line registers a trend’s strength, but doesn’t show its direction.
▪️ Plus Directional Movement Indicator (+DMI) is the difference between two consecutive highs.
▪️ Minus Directional Movement Indicator (-DMI) is the difference between two consecutive lows.

A strong trend is in place when ADX is above 25, so there’s a sense to use trend-trading strategies. Consequently, when the ADX is below 25, it’s better to avoid trend trading and choose an appropriate range trading strategy. In such moments, the price enters a range.

It’s necessary to point out that the ADX may be used to confirm a breakout of a range. When the ADX rises from below 25 to above 25, it means that the price is strong enough to continue in the breakout direction.
