ADXR for NinjaTrader 8

Indicator Description

The Average Directional Movement Index Rating (ADXR) is a component of the Directional Movement System as described by Welles Wilder. In addition to detecting the overall strength of the trend, the system also measures the strength of positive and negative price movement. Specifically, the ADXR indicator is a customized moving average (the WilderMA) applied to the ADX indicator. One may use the indicator to determine whether price movement is strong enough to consider setups. Therefore, the ADXR indicator is especially useful when considering trend-following entries.

Our version of the ADXR allows for setting the DM and ADX periods independently. Furthermore, this version of the ADXR can be applied to other input series than price.
