Market Maker Spread  

Definition 1.

The difference between the price at which a Market Maker is willing to buy a security and the price at which the firm is willing to sell it (the difference between the bid and ask for a given security). Since each market maker can either buy or sell a stock at any given time, the spread represents the market maker's profit on each trade.
 

Definition 2.

The difference between the price at which a market maker is willing to buy a security and the price at which he/she is willing to sell it. This difference is a source of profit, since the market maker will usually be buying and selling securities simultaneously.
 

Definition 3.

The difference between the price at which a Market Maker is willing to buy a security and the price at which the firm is willing to sell it. (See inside market)
