Whipsaw
A condition where an investor's Security transaction is quickly followed by an opposite reaction. Sometimes referred to as "being whipped".
    
The origins of term is derived from the push and pull action used by lumberjacks to cut wood with a type of saw with the same name.
    
There are two types of whipsaw patterns. The first involves an upward movement in the share price, which is then followed by a drastic downward move, which causes the share's price to fall relative to its original Position. The second type involves the share price to drop for a little while, and then suddenly, the price abruptly surges towards positive gains relative to the stock's original Position.
