ADX + EMA strategy

Trading strategies are sometimes based on a few different indicators. This is the case for today’s strategy. The ADX and the EMA work together to produce trading signals for you.

You should be logged in to your Binomo account. Choose the instrument and the type of the chart. Then, set the timeframe for 1 minute. Your transaction should last 1 minute as well.

Adding the indicators to the chart

Go to the indicators icon and choose Moving Average. Set the period of the indicator at 28 and the type for ‘Exponential’. You can also change the colour of the EMA line if it makes reading the chart easier for you.

The Average Directional Index will appear beneath your price chart. It consists of three lines. One is known as ADX (yellow line) and shows how strong the trend is. The second, +DI is green and the third, -DI is red. They signify bullish and bearish movements.
