Stock trends are presented by a technical analysis of a stock’s price activity. Stock trends are classified into three categories, up trend, down trend and no trend. A stock is trending up when the price action is progressing higher with a series of higher highs and higher lows. This will continue to happen at various degrees of trend. The degree of trend can be broken into time frames consisting of intraday trends to longer term trends such as weekly and monthly time frames. A stock trends up when the underlying business of the stock is growing and profitable.

A stock is considered in a down trend when the price action is progressing lower in a series of lower lows and lower highs. In many cases when a stock is trending lower there is something wrong with the growth and profits of the underlying company or an expectation that there will be something that will slow the growth and profits. The stock trend is stagnant or not trending when there is no progressing of these highs and lows in either direction.
