Decline refers to reduction or loss in the value of an asset or an investment or profits or revenues or any other important ratios or key parameters of a business or an investment portfolio.

The decline can also be used to indicate the reversal of the ongoing upward price trend that can indicate investors and traders of the possible exit points to safeguard from heavy losses.

There can be various reasons for the decline in the performance of an asset or the business as a whole. It is therefore prudent to understand the key parameters of performance and evaluate them to understand the necessary actions that are needed to rectify the such loss.
