Across the Board

Relating to or applying to a situation in which most or all members of a group behave the same way. This especially applies to a situation in which most securities on an exchange move in the same direction. For example, one might say, "Stocks are down across the board," meaning that the predominant market movement is downward. Across the board situations are normally responses to a market-wide event, such as a change in interest rate or a political situation.
