Order Types Market Order Limit Order Stop Order Trailing Stop Trade Triggers Conditional Orders
Market Order A Market Order indicates you want the immediate execution of an order for a stated number of shares at the next available price without any other restrictions. This means your order will seek execution once it is received by the market (as long as the security is trading).
Market Order Reasons for Market Order Price is less important Quick entry/exit Highly liquid securities
Limit Order A Limit Order indicates the highest price your are willing to pay for a security, or the lowest price your are willing to accept to sell a security. Your order will be executed at your designated price or better. This helps protect your order from sudden volatility, but it also means you will only buy or sell the security if it reaches the price you are seeking.
Limit Order Reason for a Limit Order: When Price is most important Target Entry/Exit Price
Stop Order Stop Market Order is an order which becomes a market order once the activation (or stop) price you specified has been reached or surpassed. Buy- stop market orders require you to enter an activation price above the current ask price. Sellers must enter the activation price below the current bid price.
Stop Order Stop Orders can help you to limit your potential loss in an investment or to lock in profits. By setting an activation price below the market, if you are selling, you may be able to limit a potential loss should the stock price fall.
Stop Order Stop Limit allows you to enter two prices: an activation (stop) price as well as a limit price. The activation and limit prices can be the same or you can choose a different limit price. A stop limit order becomes a limit order once the activation price has been reached or surpassed. When choosing a stop limit, buyers must enter an activation price above the ask price. Seller must enter an activation price below the current bid price.
