Rally (recovery)

An upward movement of prices. Opposite of reaction.


A rapid increase in stock prices. A rally occurs when investors begin buying one or more stocks in large amounts, which represents an increase in demand and therefore raises the price. A rally may happen following a prolonged decrease in price, indicating that a security has been oversold and the rally is likely to be sustained. Alternately, it may be a bear market rally, which is a brief respite between two downturns.


A fairly sharp, short-term general rise in security prices after a period of little movement or of declining prices.


A rally is a significant short-term recovery in the price of a stock or commodity, or of a market in general, after a period of decline or sluggishness.

Stocks that make a particularly strong recovery in a particular sector or in the market as a whole are often said to be leading the rally, a reference to the term's origins in combat, where an officer would lead his rallying troops back into battle. While a rally may signal the beginning of a bull market, it doesn't necessarily do so.
