orderly market

(redirected from Fair and Orderly Market)

Orderly Market

1. A market in which supply and demand for a product or security are roughly equal. Because of this, orderly markets tend not to be volatile and prices tend to reflect the true value of the product or security. It is possible for orderly markets to exist for some products and securities while volatile markets prevail in others. However, major orderliness or volatility tend to spread into the markets as a whole. See also: Buyer's market, Seller's market, Panic selling.

2. An exchange in which bid prices and ask prices are provided consistently, and in which there are few price fluctuations and no large ones. The presence of an orderly market on an exchange is often due to both diligence on the part of market specialists and the existence of an orderly market in the above sense.
