The bid-ask spread is essentially the difference between the highest price that a buyer is willing to pay for an asset and the lowest price that a seller is willing to accept.
Here is how the bid and ask differ:
🔴 When you are selling - you will have to pay the bid price for an asset or pair.
🟢 If you are buying - you will pay the ask price.
Spread is basically the difference between the prices with which you can buy and sell.
