Outside Days

DEFINITION of 'Outside Days'

A term employed by market technicians and day traders. Outside days are days where the chart bar is both higher and lower than that of the previous day. Outside days therefore mark greater volatility in the stock price for that day.

BREAKING DOWN 'Outside Days'

Outside days apply to candlestick stock charts. When the bar is both higher and lower than the previous day's bar, it falls outside the trading range of the previous day. This may indicate a change in the general direction of the stock price.
