Ask Price

DEFINITION Ask price, also called offer price, offer, asking price, or simply ask, is the price a seller states she or he will accept for a good. The seller may qualify the stated asking price as firm or negotiable. Firm means the seller is saying he or she won't change the price. Negotiable means the seller is inviting the potential buyer to attempt to convince the seller to lower the price. In the context of stock trading on a stock exchange, the ask price is the lowest price a seller of a stock is willing to accept for a share of that given stock. For over-the-counter stocks, the asking price is the best quoted price at which a market maker is willing to sell a stock.
DESCRIPTION
Stockstrokes

The price a seller is willing to accept for a security, also known as the offer price. Along with the price, the ask quote will generally also stipulate the amount of the security willing to be sold at that price. This is the opposite of bid, which is the price a buyer is willing to pay for a security, and the ask will always be higher than the bid. The terms "bid" and "ask" are used in nearly every financial market in the world covering stocks, bonds, currency and derivatives. An example of an ask in the stock market would be Rs.5.00 x 1,000 which means that someone is offering to sell 1,000 shares for Rs.5.00.
