blackout period
A period of time during which employees (possibly just senior employees and employees in job roles that give them access to important financial information) are not allowed to trade in their employer's stock. This is expressed as a number of days before a material event such as (typically) the release of a quarterly or annual financial report or (possibly) the announcement of a major acquisition (either as the buyer or seller).
