Multi-Timeframe 10X

-> The timeframe for this indicator must be set at 1 minute;
-> If the chart timeframe is higher than 1 minute, the results shown in the table for timeframes lower than the chart will not be correct;
-> Tradingview's own documentation explains this as follows: "It is not recommended to request data of a timeframe lower that the current chart timeframe, for example 1 minute data from a 5 minutes chart. The main problem with such a case is that some part of a 1 minute data will be inevitably lost, as it’s impossible to display it on a 5 minutes chart and not to break the time axis. In such cases the behavior of security can be rather unexpected"; and
-> It is therefore recommended that this indicator is placed in a standalone 1min chart window, and the window resized to only show the table to avoid any issues.

-> J. Welles Wilder creating the Directional Movement System (DMS) (1978); and
-> John Carter applying the DMS to create the popular Simpler Trading 10X Bars indicator.

Quickly see the quality and strength of a trend based on Directional Movement Index (DMI).

The Average Directional Index ( ADX ), Minus Directional Indicator ( -DI ) and Plus Directional Indicator ( +DI ) represent a group of directional movement indicators that form a trading system developed by Welles Wilder. Although Wilder designed his Directional Movement System with commodities and daily prices in mind, these indicators can also be applied to stocks. Wilder determined directional movement by comparing the difference between two consecutive lows with the difference between their respective highs.

+DI and -DI are derived from smoothed averages of these differences and measure trend direction over time. These two indicators are often collectively referred to as the DMI. ADX is in turn derived from the smoothed averages of the difference between +DI and -DI ; it measures the strength of the trend (regardless of direction) over time.

Trade Signals:
-> Green indicates an uptrend i.e. when +DI is above -DI and ADX is greater than 20 - there is more upward pressure than downward pressure in the price;
-> Red indicates a downtrend i.e. when -DI is above +DI and ADX is greater than 20 - there is more downward pressure on the price; and
-> Yellow indicates no strong directional trend and potential for a reversal.
