price creep


A steady yet gradual increase in the market price or valuation of an asset. Because of price creep, oftentimes investors will eventually be less reserved about paying a higher price for a particular asset or investment. In the financial markets, price creep can occur when investors gradually assign a higher valuation to a particular stock or security.
