An informal, slang word that is used to describe a moderate increase in price of a stock. It usually describes a situation where the stock price does not double or triple in value but does increase a sizeable amount in a short period of time.
It is used by traders who trade in penny stocks to define situations where the value increases by 25-50%. This is a significant increase, even though penny stock traders are looking for higher returns when they invest in such stocks.
As a term it is also used by forex traders when they are referring to a small, favourable move by the currency by a few “pips”.
