: "Lock step" - anyone heard of this phrase? I'm editing an article on investing and my client uses this phrase in this sentence: "On the downside the international markets move lock step with the U.S. markets."

I have heard of it before. It means to behave similarly or in tandem. For instance, not all Democrats ( US of A )march lock step with the official party stance on abortion and gun control.
