Average Directional Index (ADX)


ADX is an indicator used in technical analysis as an objective value for the strength of trend. ADX is non-directional indicator, so it will quantify a trend's strength regardless of whether its value is up or down. ADX is usually plotted in a chart window along with two lines known as the DMI (Directional Movement Indicators). ADX is derived from the relationship of the DMI lines.

Analysis of ADX is a method of evaluating trend and can help traders to choose the strongest trends and also how to let profits run when the trend is strong.


First Adx14 = 14 Period Average of DX
Second Adx14 = ((First Adx14 * 13) + Current DX value) / 14
Subsequent ADX14 = ((Prior ADX14 * 13) + Current DX Value) / 14


The Average Directional Index (ADX) is used to measure the strength or weakness of a trend, not the actual direction. Directional movement is defined by +DI and -DI. In general, the bulls have the edge when +DI is greater than - DI, while the bears have the edge when - DI is greater. Crosses of these directional indicators can be combined with ADX for a complete trading system.
