What is a trendline? What to do when a trendline slope changes?

Trendline: What it is, what does it mean? Briefly, a trendline is a line placed on a chart showing the overall direction of the particular data. There are various types of trendlines, for example linear, polynomial, or exponential. In the terms of AutoROICalc, the linear trendline is our point of interest.

Rising, declining, or stagnating?

These are the three states the linear trendline helps us to determine. The purpose of the linear trendline in an AutoROICalc chart is to immediately see if you are doing great or not. This helps you to take the relevant action. If there is a chance, take a glance at our Best Practices article to get some more information about these three states.
