For further review, we can take a look at another popular technical indicator. For traders looking to capitalize on trends, the ADX may be an essential technical tool. Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. The RSI operates in a range-bound area with values between 0 and 100. The 14-day ADX is 10.22. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. A value of 50-75 would indicate a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would signify an extremely strong trend.
