no...end point is actually located by subsequent high/low in prices and that is splitting MA difference at that vertical location.

the trend line continues to raise or lower -depending on new -highs or lows being created -

super -your trend line start is correct -but the flexible end need to be raised to reflect the center point split of the new high area-that being the 1/2 way height of the price difference between the 2 ma's -

yes devdas -your fexilble end is correct - if no new high is created the trend line will then fracture -showing weakness that the directional move is running out of steam

so, trend line start point = ma cross, end point = mid point between 2 MAs at the new high or new low since crossing point.
is this better? is this automate trend lines?
