The purpose of this thread is to discuss the "art form" that is drawing a trendline. Specifically, this thread seeks to identify the different manners in which trends are identified on intra-day charts (3,5 minute). This thread seeks responses from traders who successfully utilize trendlines as their primary trading strategy; from those who live by the mantra that, "the trend is your friend." That said, how do you: 1. Define a trend? 2. Quantify the number of "points" (RH's/RL's) for a valid trend to be in place? 3. Define those "points?" 4. Define the violation of a trendline? Examples are encouraged and appreciated.
