The spread is the difference between the buy and sell price and is usually the transaction cost when placing a trade. When a trader buys at the market price, they are buying on the ‘ask’ price which is higher than the ‘bid’ price. Alternatively, when a trader sells at the market price, they are selling on the ‘bid’ price which is lower than the ‘ask’ price. The difference between the two prices is the ‘spread’.
