Quotation (Quote)

Business / Taxes / Quotation (Quote): On a stock market, a quotation combines the highest bid to buy and the lowest offer to sell a stock. For example, if the quotation on DaveCo stock is '20 to 20.07,' it means that the highest price that any buyer wants to pay is $20, and the lowest price that any seller wants to take is $20.07. How that spread is resolved depends on whether the stock is traded on an auction market, such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), or on a dealer market, such as the Nasdaq Stock Market (Nasdaq), where the price is negotiated by market makers.
