We can see above the chart that Ethereum traded lower below the sloping trendline from 21 May 2021 to 30 July 2021, it was around 40 days' decline.

Just like the bearish trendline, the bullish trendline plays a key role during higher-low momentum. Also, the view of the chart shows buyers' dominance as pivot lows draw a trendline (blue) below the price.

Amid uptrend, bulls barely kept price above the horizontal trendline, but after the breakout, they failed to hold it. 

The trendline is a very simple tool of trading, which is easy to use and even beginners can recognize it. To create a trendline, price action must have two spots on the graph.

But be aware while using trendlines because sometimes it could be a trap if you use it in the wrong time frame.
