Enter the intraday high ($), the intraday low ($), and the intraday closing ($) into the Intraday Trend Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Intraday Trend. 

Intraday Trend Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Intraday Trend. 

IDT = (H+L+C)/3


  • IDT is the Intraday Trend ($)
  • H is the intraday high ($) 
  • L is the intraday low ($) 
  • C is the intraday closing ($) 

To calculate the intraday trend, sum the high, low, and closing price by 3.

How to Calculate Intraday Trend?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Intraday Trend.

  1. First, determine the intraday high ($).
  2. Next, determine the intraday low ($). 
  3. Next, determine the intraday closing ($). 
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = IDT = (H+L+C)/3.
  5. Finally, calculate the Intraday Trend.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above. 

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

intraday high ($) = 4.50

intraday low ($) = 3.50

intraday closing ($) = 3

IDT = (H+L+C)/3 =  ?
