Overview

A trend line indicates the current direction of market prices and businesses and helps in data interpretation. Trendlines indicates direction, pattern, and speed of price during a period of time and help businesses predict their performance, competitiveness of products and services, and sales. DMXDeepInsight supports these four types of trend lines.

  • A linear trendline usually shows data is increasing or decreasing at a steady rate.
  • A logarithmic trendline shows the rate of change in the data.
  • A polynomial trendline show data fluctuation.
  • An exponential trendline shows rise and fall of data values at increasingly higher rates.
