How to spot a trend. ?

#1
Hello seniors, I am new to markets and i learning technical analysis... i am reading various articles on the web , following various threads on traderji.

One point that i have come across is everywhere i find phrases like " the trend is your friend " , "Follow the trend " .

I even watched a video of Ace trader Atul Suri who is associated with Rare enterprise..even he said that "Trend following is important"

With my little knowledge and understanding i have came to know that following are the types of trend
1. Up trend
2. Down trend
3. Sideways

But a question that hovers around my mind is " How to identify or spot an ongoing trend "


I request the seniors here to plz resolve my query and give some inputs.

Thanks in advance :)
