How are Stocks Traded ?

Stocks are traded in the Stock Exchange on an auction basis with buyers bidding for shares of companies at a certain price and sellers offering to sell shares at a certain price. These are the Bid and Ask/Offer Prices.

A transaction takes place between the buyer and seller when they both agree on a specific price for a share to be bought or sold.
