Quotes in financial markets refer to price information of publicly traded securities delivered to investors by capital market institutions like exchanges and brokerages. Quotes can be delivered to the wider market, usually as a series of ticker symbol, either instantaneously or on delay and containing differing levels of price information.

A quote is the highest bid or the lowest ask price available on a security at any given time.[1]

Still ticking[edit]

Quotes for stocks, bonds, commodities and forex are most commonly viewed on ticker tapes crawling across the bottom on TV and computer screens, showing updated prices quoted for those securities. Most of these are flash quotes, containing just the last sale price plus net change and volume, while info quotes add more substantive information like intraday highs and lows, daily volume and previous close.[2]
