THIN MARKET is a market in which there is not an abundance of securities available, where any activity, either a purchase or sale, may have a substantial effect on market prices. See TIGHT MARKET.
PICKUP, in securities, is the higher yield obtained in a swap transaction-that is, the improved yield on the item being purchased relative to the selling yield on the security being liquidated.
DEPTH OF MARKET is the number of shares of a security that can be bought or sold at the bid and ask prices near the inside market without causing a dramatic change in price.
