Flash Price

Ticker tape display designation used when volume on an exchange is so heavy that the tape runs more than five minutes behind. The "flash price" interrupts the delayed prices to show the current price of a heavily traded stock.

When the tape is behind, the flash prices are typically shown every 5-10 minutes.
