In trading, quote is a combination of a bid and an ask price. The bid quote shows the price at which buyers are currently willing to purchase an asset. The ask quote shows the price at which sellers are currently willing to sell an asset.

    Quotes change constantly during trading sessions. Although the visual display of the bid and ask quotes can vary depending on the platform, the bid quote is always on the left and the ask quote always on the right.

    The difference between the bid and ask price is called the spread. Different brokers may have different spread quotes.
