Flat Market

A market in neither an uptrend nor a downtrend. That is, the securities in a flat market are relatively constant in price, at least for a certain period of time. A market may be flat while investors wait to hear some relevant information, such as an earnings report. A flat market is sometimes associated with low trading volume. It is also called a sideways market or a deer market.
