    Trading Window

    The period in which a company permits its executives and key employees to trade its stock; this is also called a window period. This is the opposite of a blackout period, during which a company's policy on insider trading forbids executives and key employees to make transactions in company stock. For details on insider-trading prevention and compliance, see the section SEC Law: Insider Trading.
