Low

The smallest price of a stock over a given period of time, especially when the price has first been reached. That is, when a stock's prices have dipped below the previous record for a given period of time, analysts and reporters say that prices have reached "a new low." This is generally considered a bearish sign, especially when other indicators are also bearish.

lows

The number of stocks that drop below the lowest price reached by each stock during the most recent 52-week period. Falling stock market averages accompanied by a large number of new lows tend to confirm that a bear market is in progress. Technicians consider an increasing number of lows to be a bearish sign, especially if accompanied by other bearish indicators. Conversely, record lows by market averages not accompanied by an increasing number of individual lows would be suspect. Also called new lows. Compare highs.
