Mid Price

The midpoint between (average of) bid and ask price.

For example, if current bid price is 2.50 and current ask price is 2.60, the current mid price is 2.55.

Mid price is usually a better indication of current market value than the last traded price, especially when the security is illiquid and trades less frequently, so the last traded price may be from a longer time ago.
