Order types

Order entry 101

There are two main types of orders – limit orders and market orders. In a limit order, you set a limit on the price. A market order is a request to make the trade at the best possible market price or until the order is filled.

There are six additional order types with specific rules and conditions. When those rules and conditions are met, your order becomes either a limit order or a market order.
