What do circuit limits or price bands refer to?

Circuit limits, also known as price bands or circuit breakers, are mechanisms implemented by stock exchanges to manage and control excessive volatility. These limits define the maximum percentage change allowed in the price of a security or index within a specified time frame. If the price of a security breaches the circuit limit, trading in that security is temporarily halted to allow market participants to reassess information and prevent panic selling or buying.
