All trends can be divided by:
short-term;
medium-term;
long-term.

To determine the duration of a trend, you need to use senior timeframes. In classical theory, trends are divided into annual, monthly and daily trends. For scalping, as a rule, we have enough:

define a long-term trend on a 1-day chart;
medium-term trends will be 1-4 hours;
short-term trends at 5 and 15 minutes.

Thus, we can see the picture, when a single long-term trend consists of several medium and short-term trends. This is often the mistake of beginners. They put one frame, like 5 minutes, define trends, but forget to define medium- and long-term trends. And then they wonder why this price has suddenly turned around at 5-minute. That's why on another timeframe the picture looks different.
Say, what do you see on these 5 minutes?
Does the price, like an abnormal price, fall down after a side movement? Absolutely.

the same chart looks like on the 4-hour time frame:

It is very important to understand where we are in the trend.
