Understanding Precious Metal Terminology: Bid vs. Ask

Last updated 5 years ago

Investing in gold is a reliable way to increase your portfolio’s value and secure your financial well being, but if you’ve never done it before, you may be unfamiliar with terms commonly used within the gold industry. Two essential terms that you should know before buying gold are bid and ask. Like any other commodity, gold has a wholesale market price that sets the standard for its worth. Depending on the current demand for gold, its selling price may be significantly higher than the bid. This figure is referred to as the ask price and may fluctuate on a weekly or even daily basis. Key to making wise gold purchases is knowing the bid and trying to buy gold at an ask price that’s as close as possible to its wholesale market price.
