This is a classic indicator remade by ninZa.Co.

ADX/DMI is a great combo to identify market conditions. If ADX is below a threshold (generally 20-25), the market is characterized as “chop”. If ADX meets the threshold, the market is trending:

  • If DMI+ is above DMI-, we have an uptrend.
  • If DMI+ is below DMI-, we have a downtrend.

Just that simple, but in reality traders will find it really difficult and time-consuming to interpret the plots because we have as many as 3 plots to take into account. Don’t worry! Our Superior ADX/DMI handles all these interpretations and paint chart background for you to easily read:

  • Green background: uptrend (only search for long signals)
  • Pink background: downtrend (only search for short signals)
  • Normal background: chop market (don’t trade)

From our researches, we discovered that using a very small ADX/DMI period with a little smoothing provides much better trend detection. That’s why we use a period of 3 for ADX/DMI, smoothed by HMA 2 in the default settings of the indicator.

A tremendously powerful feature of our indicator is ADX peak/exhaustion recognition, which often signals trend slowdowns or reversals accurately. For your information, an ADX exhaustion is a peak occurring in the high ADX zone (you define the threshold for the zone, e.g. 80). From our experiences, ADX exhaustion detects trend reversals or retracements to extremely high accuracy. This feature is, therefore, the priceless part of this indicator. ADX peaks are marked with small dots (), while ADX exhaustions are marked with large dots ().

The ADX plot is conditionally colorized to reflect different market periods: chop, exhaustion, uptrend rise/fall, downtrend rise/fall.

Key features:

  • Plot ADX, DMI+, DMI-

■ Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
