Uptrending stocks form higher highs and higher lows. Generally, when traders talk about uptrending stocks, they are using the longer daily and weekly time frames but do know that day traders make money off of uptrends that last minutes to hours. Whether you are a day trader, swing trader, position trader, investor, or short seller, we all need the same thing, a trend to form in the direction of our trade.

An uptrend is a sequence of higher lows and higher highs.
