Market impact is the market reaction to a given set of trades.

Market impact characterizes the response of the market, typically in terms of price changes, to a given set of trades.

The interpretation of market impact is highly subjective.

One trader’s strategy may rely on minimizing impact while another’s may actively benefit from a pronounced and consistent post-trade reaction, but also suffer if that reaction occurs before a set of related trades is completed.
