Slow market(redirected from Slow Markets)
A slow market is one with sluggish trading and static prices. In this environment, it may be difficult to find buyers willing to pay the price at which you'd like to sell your securities or other assets.
So to reduce the risk of losing principal or limiting gains, you may decide not to sell in a slow market unless you have a pressing need for the money that your asset might produce.
On the other hand, you might choose to buy in a slow market because lackluster trading volume might depress the prices of attractive investments.
The term slow market is also used to describe an exchange or market where transactions take relatively longer to execute than they do in other trading environments.
