Ask Price

In any financial market, buyers and sellers place their orders to determine the highest price they are willing to buy and the lowest price they are willing to sell. The buyers place “bids" and sellers place "asks," or offers to sell. If a "bid" is higher than an "ask," a trade occurs, as the buyer is willing to pay more than what the seller wants. At any given point in time, the lowest ask order that is unmatched becomes the "Ask Price" of the market.
