A random walk is the process by which random movements of objects wander away from where they started, in other words, events that cannot be predicted. Example: Changes in the price of stock, though have the same distribution and are independent of each other, so in this case the past movement or graph of a stock price or trend in the market cannot be used to predict its future movement. In short, it's only an idea that stocks take a random and unpredictable path
