 Price Improvement

When a buy order is executed at a price lower than the current quoted offer, or when a sell order is executed at a price higher than the current quoted bid. In addition to quoting the best prices more than 90 percent of the time, the NYSE continuous auction market typically improves upon these quoted prices, allowing investors to get a better price for their shares.
