Noise

Price and volume fluctuations that can confuse interpretation of market direction. Used in the context of general equities. Stock market activity caused by program trades, dividend rolls, and other phenomena not reflective of general sentiment. Antithesis of real.

Noise

A slight uptick or downtick in a security's or market's price and/or volume representing little or no actual change in its fundamentals. Noise occurs in the short-term; if noise continues in a certain direction, it becomes a trend, and, therefore, an indication of the general direction of the security or market. Noise, on the other hand, means little or nothing.

noise

Random market fluctuations that make it difficult to forecast the market's direction.

The dotted horizontal line spanning all months at 71 dB re 1 [micro]Pa is the noise floor of the recorders, which significantly overlaps with the values for January through March.
Performing a 10,000 trace attack indicates no correlation discernible from the noise floor. In this scenario, the correlation cannot be distinguished from the noise floor in the correlation trace; therefore this configuration is declared protected against the 10,000 trace correlation power analysis attack.
The internal noise limits the measurement system noise floor. The measurement system is passive, with the exception of the amplifiers used after the power detection and the digital processing circuitry.
