The Advanced Average Direction Index (ADX) indicator for MT4 is a great buy and sell histogram version of the traditional ADX technical indicator.
This version makes it way more easy to buy and sell currency pairs with ADX.
Basically, the indicator draws buy and sell bars based on the position of DMI+ and DMI-.
- A green Advanced ADX bar appears on the chart when DMI+ has crossed DMI- upwards. The trend is now bullish.
- A red Advanced ADX bar appears on the chart when DMI- has crossed DMI+ upwards. The trend is now bullish.
ADX is a trend-following indicator and can be used for any trade style of your preference.
The default ADX period is set to 13, you can change this value by editing the ADX period input parameter.
I prefer to set the ADX period to 40 and above for less whipsaw signals.
