When should trend-lines be drawn on and which timeframe?

Many tend to struggle with trend-line application as they simply do not have any organisation and order to performing their technical analysis. Once Phase 2 has been completed and you are satisfied with the key level placement, you have them all labelled and the overall trend direction (If any) has been identified, move through into phase 3. Take notes on the state of the moving averages on the suggested timeframes, circle any lower highs, higher lows etc.

Trend-line application should start on the weekly timeframe, we don't want to focus too much on a monthly timeframe as 90% of the time, any monthly timeframe trend-lines are often more suited to the weekly timeframe anyway.
