Sale

An agreement between a buyer and a seller on the price to be paid for a security, followed by delivery.

Sale

The act of relinquishing ownership of some asset in exchange for some monetary compensation. Sales may take any of several forms. In a cash sale, the seller receives cash or a cash equivalent immediately in exchange for the asset. In a credit sale, the seller surrenders ownership immediately in exchange for future payment, often with interest. An example of a sale is a simple transaction involving widgets. If the seller is willing to accept $2 per widget, and the buyer wishes to purchase 100 widgets, then the seller gives the buyer 100 widgets in exchange for $200. See also: Buy.
