Trend lines can offer great insight, but if used improperly, they can also produce false signals. Other items - such as horizontal support and resistance levels or peak-and-trough analysis - should be employed to validate trend line breaks. While trend lines have become a very popular aspect of technical analysis, they are merely one tool for establishing, analyzing, and confirming a trend. Trend lines should not be the final arbiter, but should serve merely as a warning that a change in trend may be imminent. By using trend line breaks for warnings, investors and traders can pay closer attention to other confirming signals for a potential change in trend.
The assumption that it is the right of every parent in every case to have 50% physical custody of their child is a dangerous one, and one that takes the primary focus off the needs of the children and diverts it to the needs of the parents. While 50/50 physical custody schedules can be a great option in many cases, there is no cookie cutter custody arrangement that works best for all children. As our society continues to change, we must continue to look at the individual circumstances of each case and what is in the best interests of individual children, rather than assuming that one particular arrangement is always better.
