Today someone asked me how to measure the strength of a trend. There are 2 ways to measure in my opinion -
1) When Price is above EMA10, EMA21 & MA50
2) Momentum (Length of candles) & closing of candles

Strong Trend - If price is rising & doesn't touch or close below EMA10
Healthy Trend - If price is rising but taking support at EMA21 & bouncing back up
Moderate trend - If price is rising & often penetrating EMA10 & 21 & taking support at MA50
Length of candles also defines the strength of trend. Longer the candle, higher the momentum thus strong trend. Shorter the candle, lesser the momentum thus trend not so powerful & may fade soon. Its like after consuming Creatine, you can have more reps in Gym.
Often before the stock/index peaks out, you will see smaller up candles & bigger down candles which shows strength of Uptrend is weakening & strength of downtrend is picking up pace. Time to stay cautious in longs (wait for price confirmation before entering shorts).
Hope this helps in understanding how to measure strength of trend. Let me know in case you have any questions.
