Bucketing
The illegal practice of a broker making a trade on behalf of a Client but profiting his own account if the price moves lower before executing the order. The order is confirmed to the client but not executed immediately; when the order is actually executed, either the client pays a higher price or the savings from a price drop is credited to the broker's account.
