Behavior Notes

  1. A price acceleration is a series of weeks that collectively show a change in a stock's rate of advance.
  2. A buying climax or distribution week may punctuate the peak of a price acceleration.
  3. An exhaustion gap may occur on the daily chart within one of the price acceleration weeks.  If present, the exhaustion gap should appear after an advance.
  4. Wide range bars are common during a price acceleration.  They can show up in a consecutive pattern of higher highs and higher lows.  A break of this stairstep pattern may serve as an early warning that the move is ending.
  5. Volume is not always heavy on a price acceleration.
