The bid-ask spread refers to the difference between where you can buy or sell a security at a market price. A wide bid-ask spread would imply that a security is not very liquid. Investors/traders should be very careful about putting in market orders for stocks, etc that have wide bid-ask spreads: you may not get the price you expect.
