Relief Rally

(redirected from Relief Rallies)

Relief Rally

A general increase in stock or other security prices because an expected negative situation did not materialize or began to reverse itself. For example, if stocks were falling all week because oil prices were rising, but oil prices suddenly dip on Friday, stock prices may recover some of their lost ground in a relief rally.
