Hi its me again with doubts :P
Here's my question is here:

Btw Em arpeggio right?


E - 5p9 - - - - 5h9-|
B - - - 17- - 17- - -|
G - - - - 16- - - - --|
D - - - - - - - - - - - |
A - - - - - - - - - - - |
E - - - - - - - - - - - |

Can i alternate picking that arpeggio or do i have to upstroke it and then downstroke
it because i feel more comfort doing it alternate but ive seen many people doing it ascending and decreasing (up & down).

Whatttttt? Why does it jump from 7th position to 14th position?

edit: i'm not editing that because i'm so stupid it's funny

Anyways, doesn't really matter. Pick it however you like. Might be nice to be able to do it more ways than one, though.

If you feel comfortable alternate picking it, then by all means do it. Most arpeggios are sweep picked (the up and down you're referring too). Learn both ways.

Are the two notes on the high e string supposed to be 15 and 19th frets?
anyways, like said above, your thinking of sweep picking, if you dont know what it is youtube it.
Other than that, its ok to play it alternating but its faster if you sweep.

You can alternate pick it but it makes sense, in decreasing effort at least, to sweep pick it.

That is what's called sweep picking. Youtube it or look at some of the exercises on UG lessons or other sites to get a better overveiw.
