What is Spread?

The Spread is the difference between the Bid and Ask prices, and it is what you pay to the broker in exchange for placing the order through them. As a result, trades begin in a negative number because you must cover the spread before you can begin to profit. Spreads are typically floating and fluctuate based on liquidity and volatility. Volatility is influenced by liquidity and vice versa.
