The ask price is the amount that you pay to buy the shares and the bid price is the amount that you will be receive if you sell. So obviously you have to wait until the share price (SP) has risen before you are in profit, which most PIs on here are not at the moment! You also have to allow for trading costs commission and taxes before you are in profit.
Seems to have settled so trying a long from 94.75 with more of a long term view from this price level - if it can't hold the low 90s though will be tempted to sell and look to buy back cheaper again. Saved myself nearly 8p per share doing so last time! I'm still not expecting much until after the elections though.
Could someone tell me what it means when eg the sp is 95, the bid price is 95 and the ask price is 99? A few minutes ago it was 98, 95, 99. What is the variation between the three figures about. Thanks
