Technical Analysis is the practice of using different analytical and charting tools to identify trends, predict future price movements and determine potential entry and exit points in the financial markets.
A Trading Plan is a systematic process-driven strategy set by a trader in order to identify the highest probable trading opportunities.
A Trailing Stop is a movable Stop-Loss Order that that follows the market price at a predefined distance as the price moves in your favour but stands firm when the market price reverses and moves against you. Trailing Stops are used to protect a portion of floating (unrealized) profits from market reversals.
A trend is the overall direction in the price of a trading instrument. Identifying bullish & bearish trends is a key part of market analysis. A Bullish Trend is defined by a series of higher highs and higher lows. Conversely, a Bearish Trend is identified by a series of lower highs and lower lows.
