Zero Minus Tick

A securities trade executed on an exchange at the same price as the preceding trade, but at a lower price than the last trade of a different price. For example, if a succession of trades occur in the following order – $30.25, $30.00, and $30.00 – the last trade would be considered a zero minus tick or zero downtick trade.
