Term:CYCLE

Shares, industries and markets move in cycles. There are three types of cycles: primary, secondary and daily fluctuations. Primary trends last from 2 to 5 years, secondary trends from 2 to 6 months and so-called daily fluctuations from 1 to 10 days. If you observe the movement of a share you will probably be able to see certain definite cycles, especially if you draw a graph. You can take advantage of these cycles to fine-tune your buy and sell decisions.
