spread

The price difference between a security's sell (bid) and buy (ask) price. All markets including foreign exchange, futures and equity markets have a spread. The size of the spread reflects the market's liquidity and transparency. For example when there are a lot of buyers and sellers in the market, the spread tends to be smaller, whereas fewer buyers and sellers make the spread larger.
