Corner -- A corner in a stock is created by the purchase of
all the floating or purchasable stock of a company, after which
the price of it can be advanced at will. Speculators who are
short of the stock and are unable to buy or borrow to make
delivery to buyers or to return stock which they have borrowed
are in speculative parlance squeezed. They must
settle with buyers as best they can.
Similar operations are conducted in grain, cotton, coffee and
other speculative commodities.
