Bidding Through the Market

In general equities, referring to an investor who aggressively wants to buy securities. He/she is often willing to bid higher than the market value for a security. A buyer may bid through the market if he/she believes the price of a security is about to increase substantially. Alternatively, he/she may believe it is a good long-term investment, even if the security's market value does not yet reflect that.
