Buy Low, Sell High

The practice of buying a security when its price is (or is perceived to be) low and selling it when its price is high. The ability to buy low and sell high requires one to be able to determine roughly when the low and high prices for a security occur. There are a number of technical indicators analysts use to find these, but critics of the practice contend it is impossible or at least excessively risky.
