How to Add Multiple Trendlines to Chart in Google Sheets

A trend line is a straight line that connects two or more price points in the past and continues forward to act as a line of support or resistance in the future.

Trendlines are frequently employed in stock market analysis. Traders use trendlines on charts to connect a series of prices or indicate the best fit of data. The resulting line is then used to provide the trader with a solid idea of how the value of an investment may change in the future.

In order to have more than one trendline in the chart, we will need more than one dataset. Once you are ready, we can get started by using real-life scenarios to help you understand how to add multiple trendlines to a chart in Google Sheets.
