Lumber Paper

Making Down

When a customer in London buys through one broker, and sells through another, it may accommodate him to have the contract made directly between the brokers, rather than through the medium of the client, thus relieving the latter of any responsibility. They may "make down," as the arrangement is called, as a matter of accommodation, but the brokers are not compelled so to do.

Management Shares

Substantially the same thing as "founder's shares" (to which subject refer), but more particularly designated in this manner because of having been given to the Managing Director, Manager, or other head officials of a company.

Market Turn

The difference between the buying and selling price of a security. (See "Jobber's Turn.")

Marking a Bargain. When a transaction is made upon the London Stock Exchange, the "broker" enters it upon a slip of paper, which he signs and deposits in a box. This is not compulsory; consequently but a small proportion of the actual "bargains" appear in the stock exchange "official list," which is made up from the quotations taken from the box, but it is a protection to the "brokers," who take this precaution, in the event of any question being raised by the clients for whom they have done the business.

Marking Board

When a "bargain," as it is termed, is made upon the London Stock Exchange, the price at which it is done, is put up, or posted, upon what is known as the "marking board," after which the quotation is printed in the "official list." (See subjects in quotation.)

Member Bank

Any national bank, State bank or trust company which has become a member of one of the Federal Reserve Banks created under the Federal Reserve Act (see end of book), i. e. joined the Federal Reserve System.
