Bid-Asked Spread (aka "Bid-Offer Spread")

 In any securities transaction (even on an electronic exchange) there is a prospective buyer who puts out a “bid” price at which he will buy the security and a prospective seller who offers to sell the security at the offer or asking price. The spread is the amount by which the ask (or offer) price exceeds the bid.
