Making a Line

In technical analysis, a situation in which the price of a security moves up and down slightly but generally maintains equilibrium. This makes a chart of the security's price look roughly like a straight line. If the price breaks away from the line and goes downward, this is a bearish indicator. On the other hand, if the price breaks upward, this is a bullish indicator.

In technical analysis, movement of a stock price in such a way that it traces a relatively thick line across a graph. The thickness of the line is determined by the size of the upward and downward price movements. A breakout from the line in an upward direction is bullish and a breakout in a downward direction is bearish.

And then I began to shew the boy how a Point by moving through a length of three inches makes a Line of three inches, which may be represented by 3; and how a Line of three inches, moving parallel to itself through a length of three inches, makes a Square of three inches every way, which may be represented by 3^2.
Upon this, my Grandson, again returning to his former suggestion, took me up rather suddenly and exclaimed, "Well, then, if a Point by moving three inches, makes a Line of three inches represented by 3; and if a straight Line of three inches, moving parallel to itself, makes a Square of three inches every way, represented by 3^2; it must be that a Square of three inches every way, moving somehow parallel to itself (but I don't see how) must make Something else (but I don't see what) of three inches every way -- and this must be represented by 3^3.
