# Defining a trend

### Defining a trend

The trend is defined as follows:

If the price at the beginning of the period is less than the current price, then this is an **uptrend**

If the price at the beginning of the period is equal to the current price, then this is a **flat**

If the price at the beginning of the period is higher than the current price, then this is a **downtrend**

#### The color of the price line depends on the state of the trend on the chart, i.e.:

Green means **uptrend**

Yellow means **flat**

A red color means a **downtrend**

The thickness of the price line depends on the volatility. The higher the volatility is, the thicker the price line is.

#### There is also sorting by: **TICKER**, **Price change** (percentage of price change) and **Volatility**.

**TICKER**,

**Price change**(percentage of price change) and

**Volatility**.

Clicking on a line chart area or ticker opens the TradingView chart. You can add or remove a coin from the watchlist by clicking on the checkbox next to the ticker.

You can navigate between the graphs of other coins by using the keyboard arrows **←↑↓→**or by clicking on the arrows on the sides of the window with the Tradingview graph.
