Bid is the price at which the trader sells while Ask is the price at which the trader will buy. The Ask will always be higher or during very good liquidity moments may equal the Bid.
In the Market Watch section of the platform, these prices can be seen on the right side of the ticker.

Usually charts are drawn using the bid line. Some trading platforms allow users to enable a line on the chart which shows the ask price. This way it is easier for the trader to visualize the distance between the two.
A notable feature to keep a lookout for when a trader enters into a:
Buy position, means the trader buys at the ASK price and always exits the trade with an opposite order - sell. There is no consequence if the trader does this manually by simply closing the position *on other platforms traders will have to open a sell order*, or their automatic levels will be hit. If the traders buys in ask, to liquidate the position they will have to consider the bid price.
Sell position, means the trader sells at the BID price and always ends the trade with an opposite order - buy. The same applies for this example. Manually or automated the order will be closed at the ask line.
Usually, because the charts are drawn with the bid price, new traders do not activate the ask level. Therefore, a new trader will see the bid line, and little pay attention to ask line which triggers the stop or limit levels.
When I joined the Rally family, I had zero knowledge about forex. I attended their seminars and lectures and it was a thorough and quality experience. Talking about my success in forex , it’s a steady process , I’ve enjoyed lots of profits and a few losses. I’m grateful for the rally trade foundation I have, I look to grow from under the wings of Rally.
I was told I could make money in my comfort zone, then I thought; “this could actually happen in my dreams”. But guess what, I made money and I’m still making money in my comfort zone with RALLY TRADE. To my account manager OLUWASEUN: thank you for keeping to your words and for being nice at the same time, thank you for having my back, you’re the best.To RALLYTRADE: thank you for this opportunity and for letting me know I could do more and better with myself..
I am so much impressed not by anybody's action or motivation to pronounce my encounter with rally trade company. I would love to say this company has done so much in my life; personally. I listen to a radio station programme about a seminar/training on how to trade forex, I planned to attend though I don't believe it will work for me. After the training I got a call from one of Rally trade staff, in person of Tamuno who done so much to convince me to go in for the trade. This young girl have been so impacting since I stated the trade and she has never for once ignore my request for support and advice; I so much appreciate you...
