This Indicator analyzes the ADX based on the market data of the selected period and demonstrates the trade signals based on its analysis. The trade signals are plotted as up/down arrows around the price bars. A blue upward arrow below the price bar represents the buy signal and a red downward arrow above the price bar is considered as the sell signal. An opposite signal compared to the trade entry can be used as an exit signal. As a short-term trading indicator, this Indicator produces frequent trading signals. Therefore, you may add other trend-following indicators like Moving Averages or Oscillators in order to filter the trade signals.

  1. Very nice research done on this indicator. Are you aware if the indicator repaints? I don’t have a problem with it if it does, but it would be nice to know in regards to backtesting… 🙂
