Price Improvement

Attaining a higher bid price, if you are selling a stock, or a lower ask price, if you are buying a stock, than the price quoted at the time your order was placed.

You will often read in brokerage marketing pitches that price improvement is an opportunity and not a guarantee. Although most brokerages purport "fighting for that last 1/16" there is no guarantee of this actually happening.
