What is an Average Directional Index (ADX)?
The ADX is a tool that helps traders determine the strength of a trend. It is based on the idea that when the market moves in the direction of a strong trend, it becomes easier to make profits and significantly lowers the risk.
Wilder's ADX indicator is a popular tool used by traders and financial experts to measure the strength of trends in a wide range of markets. The indicator was originally designed with commodity charts but has since been adapted for use in other markets.
The Average Directional Movement Index (ADX) is a tool that measures the strength of a trend, irrespective of whether prices are going up or down. The Directional Movement System incorporates the ADX and two-directional movement indicator lines used to calculate ADX. ADX readings range from 0 to 100 and are usually displayed in the same window as the two directional movement indicator lines.
