Print

The execution of a trade. The term print originates from the ticker tape where trades would be listed, or printed, as they were executed.

The term print can also refer to a technical analysis chart that shows the price activity of a certain trading instrument. These charts can be time-based, as with a five-minute chart, or activity based, such as a 144-tick chart. Regardless of the data interval, each bar prints as it forms and becomes printed at the end of the selected date interval.

The term print can refer to the execution of a trade or the "drawing" of a price bar, such as a candlestick or OHLC, also known as an "Open, High, Low, Close" bar. Traders and investors can choose if they want to establish a position as soon as price reaches a specified level, or after the price bar prints, once the price level is reached. Some strategies also involve entering a trade at the beginning of the next bar, once a bar is printed where the trigger occurred, for example, where price was met.
