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.
