Uptrend – MPI, BDO, BEL, EDC, TEL, FGEN, GLO, DMC, SM, AC, AP, SCC
Downtrend – CEB, SMDC, MWC, PX
Sideways – SMPH, URC, AEV, AGI, ALI, JFC, JGS, MBT, MEG, MER, RLC, ICT, SMC, BPI
The list above is based on identifying the short to medium term trend (past 1-3 months). Uptrends occur when prices go up, indicated by higher highs and higher lows. Lower highs and lower lows indicate prices are going down, or Downtrends. Sideways trends are a gray area.
There are different kinds of Sideways markets. They can be flat, with prices unchanging. They can trade within a range, or they can be directionless, with quite unpredictable behavior. I make no distinction in my analysis above.
As a trend-following trader, I like to Buy/Hold stocks in an Uptrend, Sell/Avoid stocks in a Sideways market or Downtrend.
