I don't know how many times I've heard the phrase: "Follow the trend" or "the trend is your friend." I'm a little confused because one trader can look at a chart and say that we're in a downtrend. A second trader can come in and look at the same chart but in a different time frame and conclude that were in downtrend. Two opposing views of the same chart. Is there a better way to define a trend in a more consistent manner?
