The “bid” is the highest price a buyer will pay to buy a share of stock from at any given time. The “ask” is the lowest price at which the seller will sell the stock. The bid price is almost always lower than the ask price. This information is only seen by brokers and investors who have access to a trading screen. These prices fluctuate throughout a trading day as shares are bought and sold.
