Spread Spread

In the financial and securities exchange world, spreads have a wide array of connotations, but for investors the price-related spread is of greatest significance. In this regard, the spread is the price difference between the bid and ask price. A wide spread is an indicator of a (temporary) lack of liquidity in a given product. The spread between various interest rates – be it in connection with currencies, or bonds of equal maturities that are denominated in different currencies – is referred to as the yield differential.
