A line drawn that connects a series of highs in a downtrend or a series of lows in an uptrend. Up trendlines represent support and down trendlines resistance. Trendline penetrations either result in consolidation moves or an actual reversal in trend. Their significance is determined by their length, the number of times they have been touched or approached and the steepness of the angle of ascent or descent.
