Combining ADX Indicator with the Ichimoku Indicator for what we call the ADX Ichimoku Strategy can improve your trading consistency. Traders familiar with the Ichimoku trading indicator will know that it is a complete trading system in itself. The Ichimoku trading system can be used as a reliable way to enter into the long term trends in the market. The most notable part of the Ichimoku system is the cloud itself which is used as a dynamic support and resistance zone. By isolating just the Ichimoku cloud and applying the ADX or average directional movement index, traders can better make use of the trend strength determined by the ADX indicator.

When combining the trend strength with the price action in relation to the Ichimoku cloud, traders would be able to find a good entry point into a potential unfolding of a strong momentum in the prevailing trend.

In the buy signal shown above, using the Ichimoku and ADX trading system, the point 1 marks the initial breakout to the upside with prices settling above the cloud. We now wait for a pullback to the cloud while watching the ADX’s DI+ crossing DI- to the upside, which occurs at point 3. Long position is taken on the candle close with stops set to the recent low. The long position is closed when DI+ crosses below DI-.

Sell Signal Example

In the sell signal set up shown above, prices first break below the cloud before pulling back. Here, at point 3, DI- rises above DI+ indicating a short position, which is closed out after DI- falls back below DI+, resulting in a quick profit.
