Which indicators are good at distinguishing trending from ranging periods?

Techies world over for ages have debated nonstop about this contentious issue, but the general consensus is that the moving averages are used in a trending market and oscillators like the stochastics are used in a range-bound market. I don't necessarily subscribe to this view.

I've been experimenting with ADX up to this point.

Price would be the best indicator.

For the record, I am NOT joking.

Guru, somewhat off topic, but perhaps you might find this video helpful. As this guy likes to say, "the proof (fundamental analysis) is in the pudding (technical analysis)."
