Ascending Trendline

Back to Glossary

An ascending trendline is simply a diagonal trendline drawn over a chart to connect a series of higher highs or lower highs. Ascending trendlines are plotted overbullish trending markets to determine where the price action is likely to go if the trend continues uninterrupted. Ascending trendlines are also used to indicate possible breakdowns in the prevailing direction. If price action breaks below an ascending trendline, it can be a bearish signal. As with all other trendlines, when the price is trading above them, they are regarded as support and when the price is trading below them, they are seen as resistance.
