ADX- directional movement index

The Directional Movement Index provides an indication of how much a stock is trending. Since stocks tend to only trend 30% of the time and move sideways the remainder of the time this indicator can prove very useful. There are three lines that make up this indicator. The +DI (Directional Indicator), the DI (Directional Indicator), and the ADX (Average Directional Indicator). The +DI line measures upward movement, the -DI meansures downward movement. The ADX measures the strength of the prevailing trend. For example: If the +DI crosses over the -DI, or the -DI crosses over the +DI the ADX MUST be rising in order to confirm the signal.
