Spike

Order ticket that shows the stock, price, number of shares, type, and account of the order. Origin: Practice of placing the ticket on a metal spike upon execution or cancellation. Spike is also a sudden, drastic increase in a company's share price.

spike

A sudden, short-term change in the price of a security that just as suddenly returns close to its previous level. For example, a stock that has consistently traded in a $10 to $12 per share range may suddenly move to a price of $14 and then return to $12. The sudden rise to the $14 price is a spike.

The RSTFT spectrum contains the signal energy distributed over a range of frequencies in the time-frequency domain; where the amplitude of the signal energy [e.sub.t], for t= 0,1,2...16, in each second during the transient and steady regimes are used as feature input of K-means clustering algorithm, in order to classify them between healthy or faulty conditions (1BRB).
A transient occupant who remains on the premises after being so requested to leave, may be prosecuted for a second-degree misdemeanor.
The project, developed by the University of Hawaii, aims to detect near-Earth objects well before they come within the vicinity of our planet but also focuses cosmic transients from time to time.
Thus, there are two transient processes in the charge circuit of an EDI with two capacitors: the first process is the charge of the capacitor C from the SDV in the time interval 0 [less than or equal to] t [less than or equal to] [t.sub.1] and the second process is the charge of the capacitor [C.sub.1] from the SDV at t > [t.sub.1].
Here, we aim at studying a completely different phenomenon which includes the effect of pulses, gaseous medium (type of the gas), and fiber length on the propagation dynamics and transient regime of SRS.
The research results show that short circuit fault of grid-side cable line at different location has different effect on the system transient voltage stability because of the control function of the SST input stage, while line disconnection fault is not associated with the fault location.
Transient stability studies deals with the effects of large, sudden disturbances, such as the occurrence of the fault, the sudden outage of a line [6].Whenever a short circuit fault is smeared on a transmission line, a transient DC offset component, transient and power frequency component is generated on the line due to the voltage and current signal [5].The scrutiny of electric fault transients in a power system provides very important information regarding the load bearing capabilities of the system which are very much helpful in the scheme of different components of the generation and the protection system[5].
Conclusions: Transient primary congenital hypothyroidism is more frequent than expected and found often in males in the primary congenital hypothyroidism cases, started thyroxin therapy in neonatal period.
It has been acknowledged that the increasing participation of RES in power generation mix of the system could significantly affect its transient behaviour following the disturbance, due to: i) RES exhibit different dynamic behaviour than conventional synchronous generators; ii) the increasing amount of connected RES results in synchronous generators displacement either by de-loading or disconnection; iii) changing power flows in the network depending on RES availability, both temporal and spatial.
To characterize engine transient fueling behavior a variety of vehicles and engines have been studied.
It is important to note that the temporal resolution of the [Ca.sup.2+] transient is exclusively determined not only by the sampling rate but also by the kinetic properties of the dyes.
The observed calcium transient activity may support the existence of a sodium-calcium antiporter and the existence of calcium influx induced by depletion of calcium stores.
