Momentum

The amount of acceleration of an economic, price, or volume movement. A trader that follows a movement strategy will purchase stocks that have recently risen in price.

Momentum

The likelihood of a price movement to sustain itself. For example, if a price for a security begins to increase, momentum is its likelihood to continue to increase. There are various ways to measure momentum, but most involve volume in some way. Generally speaking, a gain or loss on high trading volume tends to indicate that the movement has momentum and is likely to continue.

momentum

The tendency of a security to continue movement in a single direction. Momentum is the underlying factor in trend analysis of stock prices.

It is clearly shown that the total angular momentum number, angular momentum number, and potential parameters contribute significantly to the partial-wave transition and that the two-body effects modify the phases of the partial waves and are usually noticeable for lower partial waves.

It is seen that classical electron paths, associated with adiabatic potential minima, align in a sequence of horizontal circular tracks climbing under increasing magnetic field one by one in ascending order of the angular momentum, from the bottom of the cone toward its top.
Where [HL.sub.trsi] is the local angular momentum of segment v about its own transverse axis at the ith time percentile expressed in the external reference system; [I.sub.trs] is the moment of inertia of segment v about its transverse axis obtained from the e-Zone program (Deffeyes and Sanders, 2005) and [[omega].sub.si] is the angular velocity vector of segment s at the ith time percentile.
