Choppy Market

Choppy Market

A situation in which prices in a market or index fluctuate, sometimes wildly, but end at a rough equilibrium. A choppy market may be a short-term trend. For example, NASDAQ may begin a week or month at 1,500 and fluctuate as low as 1,100 or as high as 1,900, but end the period at roughly 1,500.
