Detecting trend vs. trading range

I need some help determining if we are in a trend or in a trading range.

I could look at ADX to see if it is below 25 for trading range? Any better ideas?

Thanks!

There is no perfect way to do this (just as there is no perfect way to determine entries or exits), but notice that in strong trends the price tends to stay away from the moving average for many bars.

So you could come up with an objective criteria: if the price is away from MA for an X number of bars, consider the market trending.

Happy Trading!

Thanks, Anagami. Al Brooks uses 20ema and market being on one side of it on an intraday basis, to detect the main trend (or lack of).
