Noise

A slight uptick or downtick in a security's or market's price and/or volume representing little or no actual change in its fundamentals. Noise occurs in the short-term; if noise continues in a certain direction, it becomes a trend, and, therefore, an indication of the general direction of the security or market. Noise, on the other hand, means little or nothing.
