Hi !

Looking at detailed quotes at yahoo I wonder
what this bid ask is all about. I know that somehow one of these two has something to do with demand and the other one with supply of a stock.But as somebody told me something of "Bid/Ask-Spreads" !
What do these figures mean and how can I use them to
make investment decisions? I know that a decision to buy or sell shouldn´t be made by taking just one indicator like P/E but what role are those Bid/Ask-Spreads playing?

Thank you

Hippe
