MINIMUM QUOTE SIZE REQUIREMENT, NASD Rule 6650, is the minimum size at which a market maker is permitted to display bid or offers in the BBX. The minimum size required depends on the price of the stock. For example, all quotes on the OTCBB priced under $0.50 have a minimum quote size of 5,000 shares.

ANOMALY, generally, is a deviation from the common rule. It is an irregularity that is difficult to explain using existing rules or theory. In securities, it is an unexplained or unexpected price or rate relationship that seems to offer an opportunity for an arbitrage-type profit, although not typically without risk. Examples include the tendency of small stocks to outperform large stocks, of stocks with low price-to-book value ratios to outperform stocks with high price-to-book value ratios, and of discount currency forward contracts to outperform premium currency forward contracts.
