Conduct risk - financial markets

A squeeze is a less extreme case of a market corner.

A gentle squeeze

"A market corner arises where a party attempts to achieve a dominant controlling market position to dictate price.
A squeeze arises where a party does not seek dominance, but attempts to gain control of sufficient amounts of a commodity or security to impact prices."
The Treasurer magazine, September/October 2017, p37 - Gerry Harvey, chief executive of the FICC Markets Standards Board (FMSB).
