Bunch

To combine orders for a security for execution at the same time. A broker may bunch either odd-lot or round-lot orders, but only if all affected clients agree to it. Bunching may be particularly advantageous for odd-lotters (investors with orders for fewer than 100 securities) as it helps them to avoid extra fees they are otherwise charged.

bunch
