Minus Tick

On an exchange, a transaction in which a security was traded at the lower price than its previous trade. Some regulations and rules on exchanges forbid certain transactions following a minus tick or a zero-minus tick, though some rules, notably as the short sale rule, have become obsolete with increased digitalization of the market. A minus tick is also called a downtick.
