    whats the point of following a companies last price if its somewhere in between the bid and the ask? like if the bid and ask are the same and the price is fluctuating between them, who cares what it is?

    thanks for any info
  2. At market orders are different than limit orders. When both are out of sync, that usually indicates a reversal point in price movement (at market traders hitting the bids/taking the asks).
