    This is when the buy orders for a particular stock greatly outnumber the sell orders or vice versa. This may result in a temporary trading halt for that stock if trading has already commenced for the day. If trading for the day has not commenced, it may be delayed. A surge in buy orders may result from unexpected good news and likewise, a surge in sell orders may result from unexpected bad news about the stock.

They help to build up investment consciousness among small investors.
