Advance

1. To increase in price, especially for a security. If a stock's price is $10 per share at the start of the trading day and $15 at the end, the stock is said to have advanced.

2. To make a payment before it is due to the payee. For example, an employer may advance an employee part of his/her paycheck the week before pay day so the employee may make a needed payment. If this happens, the amount of the employee's paycheck is reduced by the amount of the advance.
