Trend

The direction and momentum of a market, price, economy, or other measure. For example, if the price of a security is going mainly downward with only a few gains here and there, it is said to be on a downward trend. Identifying and predicting trends is important to finding the right moment to buy and sell securities. Trends are especially important in technical analysis, which recommends buying at the bottom of a downward trend and selling at the top of an upward trend.
