Example usage: "Following a perfect storm of negative technical dynamics, recent spinoff SnakeOil is a coiled spring ready to double over the next year."

I assume it has to do with technical analysis, but I haven't found a clear definition anywhere and the definitions I'm guessing don't give that sentence any sense.

It's a somewhat vague term for "series of technically related events". Here it means the stock has gone down a lot, and someone attributes this to a "spiral" or "cascade" of negative technical signals that accompanied and possibly exacerbated the selling (e.g., a downtrend, then a loss of critical support, then a capitulation). Now, they believe the stock is very oversold and could start a new uptrend.

This sentence is one of the best Weasel words I ever see. It is used to trick the listener to derive their own conclusion than provide any solid meaning.

I doubt you will find explicit definition for "technical dynamic", as weasel words, it is meant to create framing effect, many people will fall into the trap and related the technical with Technical analysis. While relating dynamics to positive movements (which is a wrong perception).

Following a perfect storm of negative technical dynamics, recent spinoff SnakeOil is a coiled spring ready to double over the next year.

Break down the sentence, you will find a verb follows a metaphorical noun, but none of them gives you an affirmative conclusion. E.g. there is no such things as "negative dynamic"; while "the next year" doesn't mean the next whole year, but can be forever.

  • Thanks. That sentence does sound like a pitch. – Juan Alonso Sep 28 '19 at 15:14
