//| This indicator shows you whether a pair is trending or ranging.  | 
//| For trending markets use moving averages and for ranging         |
//| market use oscillators.                                          |
//|                                                                  |
//| It shows ADX values for multiple timeframes to help you          |
//| decide which trading technique to use.                           |
//| Sometimes you'll see short-term trends against the H4            |
//| and D1 trend.                                                    |
//|                                                                  |
//| It's up to you whether you trade in a ranging market. It seems   |
//| to me that trading with the long-term trend is best.             |
//| Having said that, the reason why I made this indicator is to     |
//| to let the trader decide at a glance what to do, or even to      |
//| do nothing. Staying out of a market is a position too.           |
//|                                                                  |
//| If you want to chat about FOREX my friends and I made an IRC     |
//| channel on Undernet called #forex.                               |
//|                                                                  |
//| Best of luck in all your trades!                                 |
//|                                                                  |

//|     1.02 - added arrows, ranging icon, no zero space state       |
//|            for icons/arrows, spacing got messed up, now          | 
//|            fixed                                                 |
//|     1.01 - unreleased, reduced number of colors, functional      |
//|     1.0  - unreleased, too many colors for ADX values            |
//|                                                                  |
