Noise

Price and volume fluctuations that can confuse interpretation of market direction. Used in the context of general equities. Stock market activity caused by program trades, dividend rolls, and other phenomena not reflective of general sentiment. Antithesis of real.

Noise

A slight uptick or downtick in a security's or market's price and/or volume representing little or no actual change in its fundamentals. Noise occurs in the short-term; if noise continues in a certain direction, it becomes a trend, and, therefore, an indication of the general direction of the security or market. Noise, on the other hand, means little or nothing.

noise

Random market fluctuations that make it difficult to forecast the market's direction.

In five patients (seven ears) in our study whose hearing thresholds were 60 dB HL or worse by click ABR, DP-grams showed that emission amplitudes were significantly above the noise floor at 500 Hz, 750 Hz, and 1 kHz in five ears.
Once again, the real world gives us an acceptable basis to accommodate UWB: billions of devices all around us are constantly radiating energy into the noise floor with no appreciable effect, and no one is suggesting that these devices not be permitted as a result.
The size of the perforation was also inversely related to the level of the noise floors: The larger the perforation, the lower the noise floor.
Problems associated with the misuse of compressors are "pumping," in which the gain changes are noticeable and objectionable, "breathing," in which the noise floor is noticeably modulated in response to the program level, and "shimmering," in which this high-frequency signal level moves up and down drastically in response to low-frequency content, or, in the case of stereo program feeds, when the high-frequency information seems to deviate rapidly from side to side in the stereo image.
