What is ‘One Man Picture’

A situation in which the bid quote and ask quote for a security is provided by a single source. A one man picture is a two-way price given by a broker to an investor.

Explaining ‘One Man Picture’

The phrase relates to the level of information available to the investor, which the broker “paints” by describing the bid and ask price. In the case of a one man picture, the investor does not have many quote options and thus may not be able to obtain the ideal price.
