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.
