Ticker Tape

A record of the transactions occurring on an exchange on a given trading day, updated in real time or with only a slight delay.

When tape was common, trading volume sometimes became so heavy for a security that the tape publicly announcing quotes was delayed by a significant amount of time, usually a minute or two. This was called a tape is late situation.
