... thanks for posting this iantg. It got me to thinking....

The problem I've always had with ADX (on intra-session trading) is coming up with a qualitative signal for trend or noise. Using a static reading of say 25 or 30 misses too many good trades or worse: sets you up to get whip-sawed by trading the end of the move.

The only way I've found value in ADX is relating it to it's own most recent hi / lo and correlating that to the price action. But, this turns a system tool into just another discretionary indicator.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
