missing the market

Failing to execute a customer's order at an available price that was favorable to the customer. For example, through oversight on the part of the broker, a customer's limit order to purchase stock at $20 might not be executed even though the stock traded at less than $20 after the order was entered. The broker who misses the market is generally responsible for making good on the order.
