Fast Tape

A type of futures market that occurs when a single traded price is unavailable because of the rapid and large number of transactions occurring in the pit or ring.

Rather than quoting a specific price, a fast tape will give a range of prices marked by the word "fast" to indicate that the market is moving rapidly.
