Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Bailout.

An immediate injection of financial support into a company or organization facing imminent bankruptcy or collapse.  Bailouts can take the form of loans, cash, bonds, or stock purchases.  They may or may not require financial reimbursement.  A bailout may also be accompanied by an increase in governmental oversight and new or increased regulations.
