Short-term trend

Erratic price movements that last less than three weeks.

Short-Term Trend

Any price movement that occurs over a few hours or days. Short-term trends can be predicted with some accuracy with technical analysis. Traders make large profits (and sometimes large losses) from predicting short-term trends. Value investors, on the other hand, tend to discount the importance of short-term trends.
