How to calculate ADR (Average Daily Range)

It may be easiest to use an excel spread sheet for this.

Take the H/L for each day, for the past 14 days.


For each day list the amount of pip's between the H and L

Example. H = 1.5623 L = 1.5586

5623 – 5486 = 137

Add the total amount of pip's for all 14 days and divide it by 14.

This will give you the average daily range.

Average pips: +250 – 300 /month.

Max drawdown since 2004:175 pips.
