Away From Market

Definition:

It's terrible when your throw pillows don't match your decor or when your shoes don't match the rest of your outfit. Money types also worry about things matching up. When you make an order and quote a price for a share but the share is currently at a lower or higher price, it's away from market. 

Example

You want to pay $19.46 a share, but the best price you can get from the various exchanges is $19.62. Your bid is said to be away from the market.
