The verb rally is from French ralier, a combination of the prefix re- and alier, meaning "to unite." Dating to the late 1500s, in senses implying coming or bringing together or reassembling, it is older than the noun rally. In time, the verb came to be used to describe various forms of recovery, particularly physical and emotional ones.
She is weak from being cupped and from medical treatment, but she will rally immediately.

The noun is first used in the 1600s as a word for the reuniting of forces, and it developed senses corresponding to the verb's thereafter.

As the examples illustrate, in finance, rally means "to rebound in price" (as a noun, "a recovery of price after a decline"). The prices on the rise again are those of securities and commodities. In sports, rally is used in reference to comebacks by a team or player who takes the lead after or recovers from a significant deficit during a contest especially by a renewed, sustained, or sudden offensive.
Another sports-related sense of rally is associated with play on the tennis court. Rally is the name for the act of practicing or warming up by exchanging shots with an opponent as well as for a series of shots interchanged between players before a point is won. The latter sense is served in the late 1800s. Earlier in that century, rally2020欧洲杯滚球 was used for an exchange of blows in boxing and that use may have influenced the tennis sense.
