Price Transparency

Price Transparency

The ability to retrieve and access all information regarding a stock or other security's price. This includes the security's historic price and all current bids and asks. Exchanges have different levels of price transparency; for example, the NYSE only provides information on the highest bid and the lowest ask. In general, more transparency is seen as positive and more efficient.
