What Is the Advance/Decline Ratio (ADR)?

The advance-decline ratio (ADR) is a popular market-breadth indicator used in technical analysis. It compares the number of stocks that closed higher against the number of stocks that closed lower than their previous day's closing price. To calculate the advance-decline ratio, divide the number of advancing shares by the number of declining sharesIt measures the ratio of advancing stocks to declining stocks on a particular exchange over a given period.
  • The advance-decline ratio can be calculated for various time periods, such as one day, one week or one month.
  • The advance-decline ratio can reveal whether the market is in a bullish or bearish trend. 
  •  The advance-decline ratio may reveal whether the market is overbought or oversold. 



The advance decline chart can be calculated by dividing the number of advancing issues by the number of declining issues.

ADR = (Number of Advancing Stocks) / (Number of Declining Stocks)
