Congestion

A situation where a demand for a security exceeds supply or vice versa. In both cases, a large change in price is likely because investors will have a difficult time entering or leaving a position at its current price. Congestion can lead to a security trading either below its support level (if supply exceeds demand) or above its resistance level (if demand exceeds supply).
