(redirected from Declining Security)
Also found in: Dictionary.


Informal for a stock or other security that has dropped in price over a given period. For example, if a stock opens at $5 and closes at $4.45, it is said to be a decliner for that trading day.


Stocks that have dropped, or fallen, in value over a particular period are described as decliners. If more stocks decline than advance, or go up in value, over the course of a trading day, the financial press reports that decliners led advancers.

The indexes that track the market may decline as well. If decliners dominate for a period of time, the market may also be described as bearish.
