Our custom developed Forex ADR Thinkorswim Indicator. The Average Daily Range shows the average pip range of a Forex pair measured over a certain number of periods. Traders can use the ADR to visualize potential price action outside the average daily move. When ADR is above average, it means that the daily volatility is higher than usual, which implies that the currency pair may be extending beyond its norm.
The ADR can be helpful in setting targets for positions you are currently in as well. For example, if the ADR shows you that a Forex pair has an average daily range of 85 pips, then it might be wise to tighten up your target if a price move has achieved or is close to this expected range.
The ADR is also useful for trading intraday reversals. For example, if a currency pair reaches the top of a daily range, then it could be due for a reversal, and you could consider a mean reversion strategy to capture a potential retracement.
Feel free to use this indicator together with our other technical indicators (oscillators, momentum) or price action methods to maximize your trading accuracy.
