Even if market goes in a trend up or down, it does that in waves, not in a straight line.

during an uptrend, the market will rotate, big move up, smaller move down, big move up, smaller move down

When the market changes from going up to down, that is called a rotation

It corresponds to a change from buyers dominating to sellers dominating

Watching order flow, you effectively see that rotation kicking in

For beginners it is said, best is to trade WITH the trend, not against the trend
if the trend is up, you see a rotation down, you would then try to jump on it
when the rotation back up kicks in...

good luck !
