The indicator is especially effective in intraday strategies for predicting price movements. The average daily range determines forex trading goals: it shows the market situation accurately.
The ADR is calculated in pips from the lowest to the highest price over a period. The formula adds up the price dynamics for each day of the week and divides the received amount by the number of trading days. The result is depicted in a chart window (Fig. 1).

There are enough items in the input parameters to customize the indicator value display on the chart in the right way.
Suppose you use the Daily timeframe in the trading process. In this case, the indicator can also be configured so the ADR values on the chart are displayed as conveniently as possible (Fig. 2 & 3).
Figure: 2 — An example of the ADR indicator for cTrader on the Daily timeframe.
Figure: 3 — Another example of the ADR indicator for cTrader on the Daily timeframe.
Note that all ADR values are indicated in ticks (not pips) when the text is placed vertically. While in the horizontal display, the additional arbitrary text is removed using the Label text parameter.
For example, the ADR value text on the main chart can be hidden using the Font hidden parameter and focus only on a single window of the indicator itself (Fig. 4).
Customize the indicator according to your needs and preferences!
