Price Change

The difference between the closing price on a trading day and the closing price on the previous trading day. The price change may be positive or negative. For example, if a stock closes at $11 on Tuesday and $12 on Wednesday, it has a price change of +$1. On the other hand, if the stock falls to $10 on Thursday, it has a price change of -$2 with respect to Wednesday. Price change is also called net change. See also: Technical Analysis.
