|Trend counter values -
In some forms of Stock Trends listings, two trend counter values, separated
by a ‘/’, may appear immediately to the right of the trend symbol.
1st trend counter value = age of the current Trend Symbol, expressed as the
number of consecutive weeks the stock has shown the current trend symbol.
2nd trend counter value = age of current Trend Category (Bullish or Bearish),
expressed as the number of consecutive weeks the stock has shown one of the
trend symbols in the current trend category.
For example, given the Stock Trends listing
5/25, the value 5 beside the
symbol means the stock has shown this trend symbol for five consecutive weeks.
The following value of ‘/25’ means the stock has shown one of the
three trend symbols (
in the Bearish Trend Category (since
is one of the Bearish Trend Category symbols) for twenty-five consecutive weeks.
Note: Trend counter values do not appear in
the Globe & Mail ROB stock listings due to space limitations.
