What are the bid and the ask?

The bid and the ask are the prices displayed on online trading platforms. The bid is the highest price a buyer is willing to pay for an instrument, while the ask (also known as the offer) is the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for one.

When buying an instrument, you’ll need to focus on the ask price. When selling, you’ll need to pay attention to the bid price.
