Analysis of Bid-Ask Spreads on the Binance Exchange
This piece is the second of a three-piece series. We?re covering bid-ask spreads in this one. The first and third pieces cover order-book depth and slippage, respectively. Recall that an order book is just an electronic list of bids and asks for an asset, organized by price level. A bid refers to the highest amount of price you are willing to pay for an asset. An ask refers to the lowest amount of money you are willing to sell your asset for. The gap between the highest price someone is willing to pay for an asset, and the lowest price someone is willing to sell it for, is known as the bid-ask spread.
