1. English name for the French term "deport," which is a game that bears play on the stock exchange, in which they anticipate a collapse in prices.
2. A relationship between stock quotes that is characteristic of periods when supply lags behind from demand, when real commodity prices are higher than quotes for futures deals and prices for goods with short delivery deadlines are higher than long-range quotes. It also arises when producers refrain from supplying goods or buy up goods on the exchange in order to increase prices.
