The practice of revaluing securities and financial instruments using current market prices.

In some cases, unsettled contracts to purchase and sell securities are marked to market and the counterparty with an, as yet, unrealised loss on the contract is required to transfer funds or securities equal to the value of the loss to the other counterparty.
