Runoff

Used for listed equity securities. Series of trades printed on the ticker tape that occur on the NYSE before 4:00 p.m., but are not reported until afterwards due to heavy trading that makes the tape late.

Runoff

A situation on the NYSE in which a trade is not reported on a ticker tape until after the end of the trading day because trading volume is so heavy for a security that the ticker quotes are delayed by a significant amount of time. This was fairly common before electronic tickers were used, but has become largely a non-issue because electronic tickers announce prices in real time. See also: Tape is Late.
