Stock exchange[edit]

In the context of stock trading on a stock exchange, the ask price is the lowest price a seller of a stock is willing to accept for a share of that given stock. For over-the-counter stocks, the asking price is the best quoted price at which a market maker is willing to sell a stock.[1]

Mutual funds[edit]

For mutual funds, the asking price is the net asset value plus any sales charges. It is also called asked price or offering price or ask.[1]

Commodities[edit]

The ask price is the lowest price a seller of a commodity is willing to accept for that commodity.[1]

In auctions the ask price is the reservation price. Some auctions may not have such a price. This price is the minimum that the seller will agree to for the object being sold.
