The ask is the term used when one trader expresses an intention to buy an asset or financial instrument from another trader or institution.
The “ask” price is also known as the “offer” price.
The asking price is one of the prices often quoted in the buying and selling of financial assets.
It represents the price at which you can buy an asset, and as such will usually be higher than the market price.
It is the opposite of the bid.
