Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. However, it is important to not use the Tenkan line as a gauge of the trend but more so the momentum of the move. The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. Many traders will use the ADX alongside other indicators in order to help spot proper trading entry/exit points. At the time of writing, the 14-day ADX for Smallcap Bull 3X Direxion (TNA) is noted at 48.00. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX value over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A reading under 20 would suggest no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. A value of 50-75 would signal a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend.
