Primary Trend

An overarching, long-term trend for a security. Generally, a primary trend refers to a trend over a period of four years or so. A primary trend may be bullish or bearish, and, in market analysis, it takes precedence over opposite, short-term trends that occur periodically. For example, a security may climb 15% in annualized terms from 2000 through 2003; if the security dropped 3% in 2002, this does not change the primary, upward trend.
