A technical analysis term describing higher prices while a technical indicator that is also suppose to confirm does not.

Bearish Divergence compares the movement of prices to movement usually of an oscillating or ranging indicator. As the price makes new highs, the indicator’s highs should confirm by also making new highs. When it does not, it suggests the previous downtrend is losing steam. It is called the bearish divergence, because this signals a bearish attempt ahead.
