Bid Price – The last known price prior quoted by Data Provider for selling an asset prior to the option expiry time.

Ask Price – The last known price prior quoted by Data Provider for buying an asset prior to the option expiry time.

Last Quoted Index Price – Last quoted price by Data Provider for an Index prior to the expiry time.

In the event that there is no pricing data received 60 seconds prior to the expiry time then the data will be taken as the first quotation received after the expiry time
