Long-Term Trend

Any price movement that occurs over a significant period of time, often over one year or several years. Long-term trends are difficult to predict and they are often interrupted by brief movements against the trend. For example, the dot-com bubble of the 1990s resulted in consistently high growth on the NASDAQ average, but this did not mean that NASDAQ rose every single day or even every week.
