# What do use in your study sets to confirm if a movement has enough energy to continue it's movement after a MA crossover event?

A lot of times the cross-over events are like a rocket that starts to take off the but then falls back onto the launch pad.

Solution
RSI and ADX. RSI measures strength, ADX also measures strength in whichever direction the market is going. Give this a try http://tos.mx/1gmE7mO
post an example chart

If you have a write-up on how to trade/interpret this study, would you be kind enough to post it? Thank you.

I use this ADX Label

Code:
``````input length = 14;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
#input Label_Color_Choice =  {default "gray", "white"};

(color.GREEN));
#GetColor(Label_Color_Choice));
(color.RED));``````

I also use RSI Label
Code:
``````#RSI label for upper study

input length = 14;
input over_Bought = 70;
input over_Sold = 30;
input price = close;
input avg_type = AverageType.WILDERS;

def NetChgAvg = MovingAverage(avg_type, price - price[1], length);
def TotChgAvg = MovingAverage(avg_type, AbsValue(price - price[1]), length);
def ChgRatio = if TotChgAvg != 0 then NetChgAvg / TotChgAvg else 0;

def RSI = round(50 * (ChgRatio + 1),2);

AddLabel(1, (if avg_type == 0 then "RSI SMA" else if avg_type == 1 then "RSI EMA" else if avg_type == 2 then "RSI WMA" else if avg_type == 3 then "RSI Wldr" else "RSI Hull") + ": "+rsi+""+ if rsi==rsi[1] then " NC" else if  rsi>rsi[1] then " UP" else " DN", if between(rsi,30,70) then color.yellow else if rsi > 50 then if rsi<rsi[1] then color.dark_green else Color.GREEN else if rsi < 50 then if rsi>rsi[1] then color.dark_red else Color.RED else Color.DARK_GRAY);

#addlabel(yes,"RSI " +rsiavg, if rsiavg>70 then color.green else if rsiavg<30 then color.red else color.yellow);

Yes, it looks interesting.

@BobHug @Mr_Wheeler
Here are a few of the write-ups on the internet as to how to implement an ADX-RSI strategy:

The ADX/RSI represent only the trend/momentum component of your strategy. Support&Resistance and Volume are the other two basic components that every good strategy requires.
Also, remember that indicators only indicate, not predict - 99% of stock movement is based on price or volume.. Look at market and cycle and analyze consolidation/expansion periods to provide insight into market structure and price action. And evaluate if the volume is there to drive the price.
