Miss the Price/Market

1. To fail, through negligence, to execute an order on terms favorable to a client. A broker who misses the price/market consistently is thought to be poor at his/her job.

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.
