The session price is the price of a stock over the trading session. However, it is sometimes referred to as the final price at the session's close. Daily price data for a trading instrument usually includes the open, high, low and close prices.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Session Price'

Because the session is not a singular point in time, the term is usually qualified: for example, "the opening session price", "the range of the session price" or "the session price was very volatile." The session price can be useful in establishing areas of support and resistance, and in identifying overall trends in a market.
