What does this tell you about the argument that the recent trend is flat ?
It tells you that cherry picking your start point can be used to make almost any point in a short duration dataset. This is why we choose a running mean back to the start of the dataset. It avoids such cherry picking.
The difference between you and me Little Fish is that I would never even consider making such a poor argument. Think about your credibility here !
