Time Series

A comparison of a variable to itself over time. One of the most common time series, especially in technical analysis, is a comparison of prices over time. For example, one may compile a time series of a security over the course of a week or a month or a year, and then use it in the determination of future price movements.

A set of variables with values related to the respective times the variables are measured. Thus, a weekly record of a stock's price throughout a period of years is a time series. Time series are often used to project future values by observing how the value of a variable has changed in the past.

time series

any statistical information recorded over successive time periods. See TIME-SERIES ANALYSIS.
