In charts that account only for a security's price without regard for time, the amount of change in price needed to move the chart. Most charts that do not account for time are a series of columns (variously conceptualized), each representing a price. Thus, a reversal amount may be thought of as the amount of price movement needed to create a new column on the chart.
