Maximum Price Fluctuation
On an exchange, the maximum amount by which a contract or security may decline in price during a trading session. This may be a dollar amount, but is usually some percentage of its opening price. Exchanges set maximum price fluctuations in order to reduce volatility in the market and to reduce pressure for panic selling or panic buying.
