A. Find a stock that has the (red) ADX line between 30 and 40 and for which the +DMI line has recently crossed to the upside over the -DMI line.
B. Check that the average size of the most recent 5 volume bars (e.g., 15-minute volume bars for swing trading, 1-minute volume bars for day trades) are at least 30% greater in size than the preceding volume bars. (Example: If volume bars 7 - 8 periods ago were 100K, it is preferred that you see 130K+ size volume bars at time of entry.)
C. Confirm that the ADX line is making its first move over the 40 value and is not in the process of pulling back or retesting the 40 on a subsequent move after an earlier breakout.

A. Buy the first higher candle/bar that's breaking out as the ADX gets over the 40 value on increasing volume.
B. Set an initial stop at the low end of the price that the issue was trading at when the ADX broke over the 40.
C. As the position moves in your favor, trail a protective stop at the low end of the prior bar/candle.
D. ADX-based stop (breakout entries): For breakout wins, trail a stop at the point at which the ADX line loses 5 points (Example: If the position was initiated when the ADX was at 42, and it subsequently trended in your favor to 63 before starting to flatten out, trail a stop for the issue being trading at the point at which the ADX drops back to 58.)

ADX-based stop (trending exits): If in an open position in a slow-trending stock and the price action starts to flatten out, exit the position immediately if the ADX starts to lose 40 because this helps confirm the loss of the trend.

E. Volume-based stop: Confirmation for all exits occurs if the most recent volume bars start to lose 30% or more of their value as the issue continues to trade.
