The strategy was authored by Hucklekiwi Pip back in 2015 and is still being updated today. She says that the system was designed to simply catch short-term forex trends. At its heart, the system is a simple EMA crossover strategy with a couple of other indicators used for confirming entries.
See her original post here:
Average Directional Movement Index – ADX can be used to help measure the overall strength of a trend. The ADX indicator is an average of expanding price range values. The ADX is a component of the Directional Movement System developed by Welles Wilder. This indicator on its own does not give you a direction but instead measure the strength of the trend. In general...
This Adx +-Di is just a complete version of what the ADX is supposed to signal.
So you have:
15 (contraction), 20 (threshold), 30 (expansion), 40 (resistance) levels.
Below 20 the price is not trending
Above 30 the price is trending
Below 15 price has been in contraction for too long
Between 20 and 30 price is in a "transition zone".
I finally added a...
The average directional index (ADX) is a technical analysis metric. Analysts use it to determine the relative strength of a trend, with the direction of the trend either upwards or downwards.
The Average Directional Index (ADX) along with the Negative Directional Indicator (-DI) and the Positive Directional Indicator (+DI) are momentum strength indicators that...
A simple modification of the built-in "Average Directional Index":
To identify wether there is an uptrend or a downtrend, the function color is conditional:
no trend: black
small uptrend (weak threshold): light green
big uptrend (strong threshold): green
small downtrend (weak threshold): light red
big downtrend (strong threshold): red
Average Directional Movement Rating quantifies momentum change in the ADX . It is calculated by adding two values of ADX (the current value and a value n periods back), then dividing by two. This additional smoothing makes the ADXR slightly less responsive than ADX . The interpretation is the same as the ADX ; the higher the value, the stronger the trend.
Edit of the popular script by @TraderR0BERT
- horizontal colored areas, indication weak/medium/strong trend
- vertical bars, signaling trend/momentum changes
- DI+ vs DI- contraction/expansion histogram (to measure the DI volatility)
It’s a method/study to find trending stocks and cryptocurrencies using two different periods (14, 5) ADX Overlap with a MACD Filter. The MACD filter may or may not be used.
Green shadow implies Trending Uptrend
Red shadow implies Trending Downward

The indicator gives a multiplication of ADX and the DI+ and DI-values, color coded for bullish or bearish momentum
the indicator was optimised for use with HA-candles, but works with regular candles as well
and shows general market direction en divergence in a simpler visual way than the normal ADX-DI lines
a threshold mask can be shown or omitted as...
This indicator converts conventional triple lined ADX, DI+ and DI- into two lines. First line is the
original ADX line and second line is obtained by subtracting DI- from DI+ which named DI Spread(DIS)
If ADX is greater than 20 there is a trend and if greater than 40 there is a strong trend but ADX does not tell
the trend direction
To determine trend direction,...
Version 2 added support for MTF, to see the trend direction on the lower or higher timeframe.
As an example to see the difference, the indicator is added three times, one time for the current TF, one set at the higher and one at the lower TF.
Cudo's to Chris Moody for the MTF-switching-code!!
This indicator is based on the formulas in the original "ADX and DI" script of Masa Nakamuro
