Average Directional Movement Index Rating

Introduction

This indicator computes the Average Directional Movement Index Rating (ADXR). The Average Directional Movement Index Rating is calculated with the following formula: ADXR[i] = (ADX[i] + ADX[i - period + 1]) / 2

To view the implementation of this indicator, see the LEAN GitHub repository.

Using ADXR Indicator

To create an automatic indicators for AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating, call the ADXR helper method from the QCAlgorithm class. The ADXR method creates a AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating object, hooks it up for automatic updates, and returns it so you can used it in your algorithm. In most cases, you should call the helper method in the Initializeinitialize method.

public class AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRatingAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm
{
    private Symbol _symbol;
    private AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating _adxr;

    public override void Initialize()
    {
        _symbol = AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol;
        _adxr = ADXR(_symbol, 20);
    }

    public override void OnData(Slice data)
    {
        if (_adxr.IsReady)
        {
            // The current value of _adxr is represented by itself (_adxr)
            // or _adxr.Current.Value
            Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adxr", _adxr);
            // Plot all properties of adxr
            Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adx", _adxr.ADX);
        }
    }
}
class AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRatingAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):
    def Initialize(self) -> None:
        self._symbol = self.AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol
        self.adxr = self.ADXR(self.symbol, 20)

    def OnData(self, slice: Slice) -> None:
        if self.adxr.IsReady:
            # The current value of self.adxr is represented by self.adxr.Current.Value
            self.Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adxr", self.adxr.Current.Value)
            # Plot all attributes of self.adxr
            self.Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adx", self.adxr.ADX.Current.Value)

The following reference table describes the ADXR method:

ADXR()1/1

            AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating QuantConnect.Algorithm.QCAlgorithm.ADXR (
    Symbol                                symbol,
    Int32                                 period,
    *Nullable<Resolution>           resolution,
    *Func<IBaseData, IBaseDataBar>  selector
   )
        

Creates a new AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating indicator.

If you don't provide a resolution, it defaults to the security resolution. If you provide a resolution, it must be greater than or equal to the resolution of the security. For instance, if you subscribe to hourly data for a security, you should update its indicator with data that spans 1 hour or longer.

For more information about the selector argument, see Alternative Price Fields.

For more information about plotting indicators, see Plotting Indicators.

You can manually create a AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating indicator, so it doesn't automatically update. Manual indicators let you update their values with any data you choose.

Updating your indicator manually enables you to control when the indicator is updated and what data you use to update it. To manually update the indicator, call the Updateupdate method with a TradeBar or QuoteBar. The indicator will only be ready after you prime it with enough data.

public class AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRatingAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm
{
    private Symbol _symbol;
    private AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating _adxr;

    public override void Initialize()
    {
        _symbol = AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol;
        _adxr = new AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating(20);
    }

    public override void OnData(Slice data)
    {
        if (data.Bars.TryGetValue(_symbol, out var bar))
        {      
            _adxr.Update(bar);
        }
   
        if (_adxr.IsReady)
        {
            // The current value of _adxr is represented by itself (_adxr)
            // or _adxr.Current.Value
            Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adxr", _adxr);
            // Plot all properties of adxr
            Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adx", _adxr.ADX);
        }
    }
}
class AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRatingAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):
    def Initialize(self) -> None:
        self._symbol = self.AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol
        self.adxr = AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating(20)

    def OnData(self, slice: Slice) -> None:
        bar = slice.Bars.get(self.symbol)
        if bar:
            self.adxr.Update(bar)
        if self.adxr.IsReady:
            # The current value of self.adxr is represented by self.adxr.Current.Value
            self.Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adxr", self.adxr.Current.Value)
            # Plot all attributes of self.adxr
            self.Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adx", self.adxr.ADX.Current.Value)

To register a manual indicator for automatic updates with the security data, call the RegisterIndicator method.

public class AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRatingAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm
{
    private Symbol _symbol;
    private AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating _adxr;

    public override void Initialize()
    {
        _symbol = AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol;
        _adxr = new AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating(20);
        RegisterIndicator(_symbol, _adxr, Resolution.Daily);
    }

    public override void OnData(Slice data)
    {
        if (_adxr.IsReady)
        {
            // The current value of _adxr is represented by itself (_adxr)
            // or _adxr.Current.Value
            Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adxr", _adxr);
            // Plot all properties of adxr
            Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adx", _adxr.ADX);
        }
    }
}
class AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRatingAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):
    def Initialize(self) -> None:
        self._symbol = self.AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol
        self.adxr = AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating(20)
        self.RegisterIndicator(self.symbol, self.adxr, Resolution.Daily)

    def OnData(self, slice: Slice) -> None:
        if self.adxr.IsReady:
            # The current value of self.adxr is represented by self.adxr.Current.Value
            self.Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adxr", self.adxr.Current.Value)
            # Plot all attributes of self.adxr
            self.Plot("AverageDirectionalMovementIndexRating", "adx", self.adxr.ADX.Current.Value)
