Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Trend.

The overall direction of a stock, asset, or market’s price.  Uptrends are defined by rising action, such as higher swing highs and lows.  Downtrends are defined by falling action, such as lower swing highs and lows.  Some traders opt to trade with the trends, capitalizing on rising stock prices.  Whereas others trade against the trends, attempting to find reversals.  Trends occur in all markets, from stocks to bonds to futures.
