ADX Trend Scanner


The ADX Trend Scanner is based on the “Average Directional Index” that was developed by J. Welles Wilder. This indicator aims to help traders determine trend strength and consolidation zones. The calculation is based on a moving average of the price range expansion over a specific period. The ADX plots values ranging from 0 to 100. This indicator does not indicate direction, rather it registers the trend strength regardless of whether price is trending up or down. This can be seen on price charts for any interval.
