Limit Up/Limit Down
The maximum advance or decline from the previous day's settlement price allowed in one trading session on an exchange. Some markets do not trade again for the rest of the session after a limit up/down move unless prices retreat from that limit. Other markets suspend trading temporarily when limits are hit and then reopen with expanded limit levels.
