Slight drop in securities prices after a sustained uptrend. Analysts often advise investors to buy on dips, meaning to buy when a price is momentarily weak. See: Correction, break, crash.


A small decrease in a security's price after a significant uptrend. Some investment advisers and technical analysts recommend buying after a dip if there are signals that the uptrend will continue afterwards. However, it is sometimes difficult to determine whether a dip is temporary or if it is the beginning of a trend reversal.


A small, short decline in a variable such as the price of a security or interest rates. A broker may advise a customer to accumulate a particular stock on dips. When the security begins declining in price, it is difficult to know if the decline is just a dip or if it is the initial step in a more substantial price reduction.

In the developed numerical model, a thrust fault propagated at the dip angle of 60[degrees] with a vertical displacement of [DELTA]H/H=0.
max], dip angle [beta] = 0[degrees], 15[degrees], 30[degrees] and 45[degrees], the variations of longitudinal strain along the two outer generators of the pipeline in B part are shown in Fig.
SN-2 will be unstable (planar or big wedge failures) if its dip angle is greater than 80[degrees].
Note also that the tilting angle & in the transformed space can be expressed through the dip angle [THETA] as
This model evaluates the thrust fault propagation at the dip angle of 600 with a vertical displacement of [DELTA]H/H=0.
For the Cali segment, a change in the dip angle is considered down to a depth of 100km, to a width of approximately of 180km of the trench.
When the jointed dip angle is 30[degrees], as shown in Figure 2(d), the cracks are still distributed mainly above the jointed layer.
Furthermore, as the dip angle only differed with a maximum variation of 0.
In general, it is accepted that in the Southern region, the Nazca plate continuously subducts with a 30[degrees] dip angle down to about 300 km depth; while in the Central region, the plate subducts with an initial 10[degrees] dip angle from the trench to the coastline, increasing to a 30[degrees] dip to a depth of 120 km, and then becoming almost horizontal up to distances of 500 km from the trench.
Drill hole CHU WEST 07-20 was drilled at an Azimuth 250 degrees and a dip angle of -45 degrees to test the width of the quartz-molybdenum stockwork zone which strikes northwest and hosts the significant molybdenum mineralization at CHU over the discovery's 1700 meter length.
Pairwise relative semivariograms were produced for gold and copper from six meter composites in the four principal horizontal directions, namely: azimuths 90 degrees, 0 degrees, 45 degrees and 135 degrees with dip angle 0 degrees.
Hole 04-37, drilled at a 45 degrees dip angle, was stopped at 370 metres where a fault was encountered.
