Evening up -- A stock market term, meaning the securing of

a loss in a stock of which he was short may turn about
and go long of the stock and make up his loss ; or a speculator who lost in one stock may make up his loss in another stock.

when a dealer buys more than he sells he subsequently sells
enough additional to make up the difference, thus equalizing
or evening up.
