how does ACD work?

ACD is based on an opening range. The opening range is shown as the area between high and low of the price action during the first N minutes after the session start. For example these are opening range used:

6E: from 7:20 to 7:50 AM CT
CL: from 9:00 to 9.45 AM EST
ES: from 8:30 to 8:50 AM CT

For each instrument there is basically a different start time and duration. Then starting from the high or low, and offset is added or subtracted. The offsets are used to calculate A values for the primary breakout, and C Values for reverse breakouts.

6E: A value = 10 ticks, C value = 12.5 ticks
CL: A value = 8 ticks, C value = 13 ticks
ES: A value = 14 ticks, C value = 2 ticks

There is a whole thread on this method.

Chart for CL 08-12attached.
