Narrow market

Narrow market

An inactive market, which displays large fluctuations in prices due to a low volume of trading.

Thin Market

A market for a security with few transactions. Because of the low trading volume, a single, large order to buy or sell the security can affect the price significantly. It is also called a narrow market. See also: Inactive Security, Broad Market.
