Required minimum distribution (RMD)

# Distribution area

Distribution area

An established price range in which a stock has been trading in for a significant amount of time. See: Accumulation area.

# Fractal Distribution

Fractal Distribution

A probability density function that is statistically self-similar. That is, in different increments of time, the statistical characteristics remain the same.

# Normal Distribution

Normal Distribution

The well known bell shaped curve. According to the Central Limit Theorem, the probability density function of a large number of independent, identically distributed random numbers will approach the normal distribution. In the fractal family of distributions, the normal distribution only exists when alpha equals 2, or the Hurst exponent equals 0.50. Thus, the normal distribution is a special case which in time series analysis is quite rare. See: Alpha, Central Limit Theorem, Fractal Distribution.

How the income of an economy is divided among the owners of different factors of production, into wages, rents, etc.

# Skewed distribution

Skewed distribution

Probability distribution in which an unequal number of observations lie below (negative skew) or above (positive skew) the mean.
