Average Daily Range (ADR) is a common metric used to measure volatility in an asset. It calculates the average difference between the highest and lowest price over a time interval – normally five days.
The Inner Circle Trader teaches the importance of this metric from an algorithmic point of view; in particular the 1/3ADR price level is deemed to be a threshold used to determine the area at which a Judas Swing – false move to trick market participants, protraction, manipulation – might exhaust.
Another key difference in the ICT-use of this metric compared to the classic approach is that the average range is calculated from New York midnight Time, rather than the daily candle's open.
This exact concept was upscaled to higher Timeframe fractals obtaining the Average Weekly Range (AWR) and the Average Monthly Range (AMR). The latter two metrics are anchored at the first Monday’s midnight (New York Time) of the respective interval – however they also have the option to be anchored at the True Week Open (Tuesday’s Daily Open) and True Month Open (Second Week Open).
It is crucial to remember that the elements of Time are key when it comes to interpreting how price action will, or won't, react to these levels: what Time of the day is it? what day of the week? what week of the month?
If one thinks about the Power of Three of a candle (Accumulation, Manipulation Distribution), it is highly unlikely that a Manipulation event will happen later in the candle’s development – seeing the 1/3ADR hold in London session or New York open, seeing the 1/3AWR hold on Tuesday or Wednesday, or seeing price race to the 1/3AMR early on in the month gives undeniable edge to an Analyst.
Apart from the 1/3 level seen from a Judas perspective, the opposing 1/3 level, and the full AR projections, are excellent algorithmic levels at which we will see orderflow or reactions worth studying. These can be take profit targets, reversal opportunities, pyramid entries, …
Last but not least, the tool is equipped with a Data Table. You have a clear narrative but you are unsure of when price will expand? Track the previous 5 ARs and the current Range for Daily, Weekly, and Monthly – the smaller the AR the higher the chance for an expansion, the larger the AR the higher the chance for a consolidation.
