    What is the meaning of this phrase

    Hi everybody!

    Please help me to understand the meaning of the following short phrase: "Market in out"

    How it translates and which associations it rises up for a native speaker?

    Probably it looks strange why I ask this but that's because I'm going to buy domain name "marketinout.info" and I try to understand if this domain sounds great, or at least not dummy.

    Many thanks everybody for help, in advance!

    It's a meaningless phrase that you'll never hear spoken; I don't see how that's going to attract people to your site.

    I agree about meaningless. I have no idea what such a site is about.

    Re: What is the meaning of this phrase

    Thank you guys for the comments.

    I'd like to mention that actually the idea was to have a firm named "Market In&Out" (Market In and Out) but this name is too long for domain I though if it's possible to have just marketinout.info as a domain.

    Domain names are often senseless, e.g. google, yahoo, etc. So i agree and accept marketinout is senseless, but my goal is not to reflect business in the domain name. I just want to make marketinout.info domain for Market In&Out firm.

    I only would like to know if the phrase "market in out" is not something ridiculous for native speaking people.

    Domains dedicated to movies are frequently long and in order not to be confused with something else have 'themovie' or 'thefilm' in their name, something like http://www.marketinandoutthemovie.com
    Visit imdb and see how domain names for modern movies look like. It is nearly a de-facto standard.

    Why did you decide I want a domain for movie?
    My future domain "marketinout.info" will be dedicated to Financial Markets

    Re: What is the meaning of this phrase

    Since domain names are often senseless, why are you asking?

    "market in out" is not something ridiculous, only meaningless. Sounds like it has something to do with market timing.

    Re: What is the meaning of this phrase

    when you market a product you don't market it "out" or "in," you just market it. If you say "I'm going to market this in" people won't know what you're talking about so why name your firm or site with a phrase that will only make people scratch their heards or assume you don't speak English. Same with financial markets, there's no in or out involved.

    Traders often utilize such phrases:

    "go in market" = buy something, buy some shares of some company
    "stay out of market" = not to trade anything, wait.

    That's why the idea was to name a firm "Market In&Out", and have a domain name "marketinout.info"
