Bid Price

August 26th, 2017 by Kara in

This is the price that a buyer is willing to pay for a certain security.  This is the opposite of ask price, or the price at which the owner of the security is willing to sell.   These terms are used in nearly all financial markets including security, bond, derivative, and currency markets.  The difference between the bid and ask prices is known as the bid/ask spread.
