Depth

The ability of a security to withstand greater or smaller demand without affecting the price. Deep securities tend to be highly liquid and can be bought or sold in large quantities without their prices greatly moving in either direction. Among the factors affecting depth is the minimum price increment at which trades can be made (the tick size), market transparency, and restrictions on trade due to a futures or option contract on the security.

depth

Used to refer to a security market's ability to absorb large security purchases or sales without significant price changes. A market's depth is an important consideration in selecting securities to trade and markets in which to trade. See also deep market.

depth

The distance between the front and the rear property line of a lot. Because local government rights-of-way for streets and sidewalks may exceed the actual width of the pavement, the lot depth may be less than the visible yard.
