Strengths of moving averages The strengths of moving averages as a trend identification tool are: provides an objective measure, conceptually straightforward and easy to use, easily programmed and therefore available in probably every investment/trading software program, applicable on all time frames, and long pedigree. Weaknesses of moving averages The weaknesses of moving averages as a trend identification tool are: moving averages lag the price action, the longer the time frame the more they lag, so when used as part of an exit methodology their signals can be late, on any one instrument different moving averages seem to work better than others at different times, and so trading systems using moving averages can back-test well with a particular combination of moving averages over one period, and then do dismally over another; this problem can be partly overcome by using this tool in combination with other tools (such as ADX).

Here is a chart showing that sideways trend, and it shows clearly how ADX behaves in a sideways market. Sterling Dollar Look at the period after the arrow. The day of the arrow was the day when the 8 day ADX dropped below 25. During the sideways market which followed both the 8 day and the 14 day ADX levels remained at low levels, signifying a lack of a trend and indicating that this was a market unsuitable for trend following strategies. At one point the 8 day ADX falls to as low as 12, and the 14 day ADX falls to as low as 10.

In a sideways market, or where I am already close to a predetermined maximum limit for the number of open trades I hold, I might raise the cut off to 30. The ADX setting will also affect the number of potential trading candidates. If for instance one decides to go looking for instruments with a rising ADX over 20, if an 8 day ADX is used this will generate many more trading candidates than if a 14 day ADX is used, because it takes longer for the 14 day ADX to rise. But the same trade-offs apply as when we looked at using a lower cut-off point for the rising ADX, more trading candidates does not necessarily mean more overall success.
