Facilitation

The process of providing a market for a security. Normally, this refers to bids and offers made for large blocks of securities, such as those traded by institutions. Listed options may be used to offset part of the risk assumed by the trader who is facilitating the large block order. See also: Hedge ratio.

The three stretching protocols were: 1) a static stretching (SS) exercise consisting of three sets of 30 s; 2) a dynamic stretching (DS) exercise consisting of three sets of five slow repetitions followed by 10 fast repetitions completed as fast as possible; and 3) a proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) exercise.
