The reference value for the stock market trend is usually the DAX in Germany and the Dow Jones Industrial Average in the USA . The daily values ​​of these reference values ​​are combined into a time series and the resulting development of the stock market trend is expressed in the following standardized terms:

  • with falling course change : yielding / weaker / weak / very weak;
  • with increasing course change : friendlier / friendly / firm / firm / very firm;
  • with a slight change in course : held / maintained / just maintained / resistant.
  • Trends with no tendency are called “unchanged”, “maintained”, “well maintained”, “just kept”, “maintained”, “well maintained”.
These are descriptive explanations of the course and its inclination in a certain direction.

Long-term tendencies are called stock market trends , which play a key role in chart analysis .
