The word capping is defined as a procedure which entails the effecting of transactions of commodity and security shortly before the expiry date of an option. This procedure helps to depress or prevent a rise in the price of that commodity or security. It is a term commonly used in investment terminology.

This term is also used to describe the internet activity of looking at a screen capture and giving it a caption to suit the picture or the visual. It can be done for any purpose but is usually employed to give a humorous touch to the screen capture which is also known as screengrab. This started with the popular TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Capping comes from the noun or verb "cap." This word usually refers to a soft, often peaked, hat or similar head covering. However, it has other meanings based on the idea of "putting something on top of something else," usually with the idea of putting a limit on something or preventing it (in the same way that putting a cap on your head stops it getting cold.

In this sense we can talk about capping teeth, or "getting your teeth capped." This means putting a permanent cover on top of a tooth to prevent decay. National or loval government can also "cap" or "put a cap on" spending by a certain department, or on the rates it can charge for a service ("The government is talking about capping council tax rates.")

Capping can also occasionally refer to an award, such as a sports prize or, in some countries, a degree.

It is sometimes used as a metaphor, eg "The mountain was capped with snow."
