Parabolic Move

Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Parabolic Move.

Trading slang referring to an exponential growth in a stock’s price.  The term comes from the appearance of a parabola graph in mathematics.  In a parabolic move, the stock price takes the appearance of a parabolic graph, meaning the price is rising at a rapid rate.  This “rapid rate” is often so rapid it takes the appearance of a straight line directly upwards.
