A rally is a rise in the price of a financial instrument after a period of decline (a downtrend) or sideways movement (ranging). Rallies are usually caused by an influx of investment entering the market.

    An increase in prices during a primary trend bull market is called a bull market rally and it is sometimes defined as an increase of 10-20%. Bull market rallies usually begin suddenly and they tend to be of short duration.
