The bid/buy price is the highest price that the buyer is willing to pay for the security at a given time. The ask/sell price is the lowest price that the seller is willing to sell the security for at a given time. The bid/buy price will almost always be lower than the ask/sell price.

This is the so-called securities safe keeping fee. We calculate the safe keeping fee daily from the current value of securities.
