I just wanted to clarify few basic terms that are used very often to indicate market movements.

  • Plustick/Uptick
    Security is Trading at higher than the previous sale price
  • Minustick/Downtick
    Security is trading at lower than the previous sale price
  • Zero plustick
    Security is trading at same as last sale price but previous tick was a plustick
