An investor who wants to buy a security, but not necessarily immediately. That is, a bidding buyer is willing to wait until a seller offers him/her a sufficiently low price, as opposed to simply wanting to accumulate securities. A bidding buyer may believe that the security he/she wants to buy represents a solid company, but not one that is nearing an explosion of growth. See also: Bidding through the market.
