Price Target

« Back to Glossary Index

A price objective identified by a trader upon establishing a new position. The price target is typically derived from fundamental analysis of the underlying company and stock, or technical analysis projections of key levels of resistance (on long trades) and support (on short trades). A price target allows for evaluation of the reward (profit potential) relative to risk (downside to next support) in a trade.
