What is the difference between a limit and market order?

What is the difference between a limit and market order? ★ SUMMARY ★ Market order Think of a market order as paying the market price when buying or really selling a stock, meaning you would pay whatever price is necessary to get your shares. Limit order When it comes to a limit order, you get to specify the price you want to pay for the stock. You get favorable pricing, but you may not get filled with your order if your price is not met. When should you use market order or limit order? When do you use one of the other? Well, market order is great if you need to get into a stock right away, really fast, typically day trading, and you’re trading liquid stocks.

+Sasha Evdakov: Tradersfly I tried a market order instead of a limit order and it worked.. although for this other stock it said something about having to be approved for margin sell short/buy over idk. Thanks though (:

what program is that? thanks! very helpful video. etrade is forcing me to do limit orders on a particular stock (im guessing so all the big guys can get their after-hours orders in). hoping when the market opens i get what i want :)
this is the thinkorswim platform. I also use the tc2000 platform that you can take a look at all our resources on our website

limit orders are asking for a specific price limit or better(sell $1 or higher), but can you place an order for only a specific price(only $1) no more or less, in the market? would you be able to directly negotiate with another buyer in this way OTC?

very nice of everyone who bought into amazon during the time this video was uploaded. i, in 2018 believe amazon's current stock of $1,296 is still the beginning of this amazing company. I believe it will not be ran by people who private brand but instead be its own private brander company without the need to use other companies to fulfill their inventory. Who knows, but I think amazon is the company that will have a shot to do this.

Is it ok to set a sell stop order above the entry price when trading volatile stocks?
KimChiTofu (1 year ago)
how do you sell your stock on td ameritrade by T-Stop % and $? Let's say a penny stock is .18 cents and when the market open, i know that the price will go up to 20 cents by mid day it will go to 24 cents. So let's say i want to sell my stock by 22 cents, how do you set it with T-Stop $ to sell when the price reaches 22 cents?

Hey Sasha, So limit orders or stop-loss order and others they must be filled first? For example if current price is 34.73 and my limit order is set 35.88. So, it has to reach to the exact same limit number in order to execute or if 2-5 cents different(more lets say) still will be executed??? Please enlighten us! Thanks :)

Hi Sasha, How does the "buy - market order" relate to the current "ask" price? Does a market order automatically buy at the ask price? I've seen instances were sales take place in between the market price and ask price. Current Price $3.25 and a sale takes place at $3.28 with the nearest ask price $3.30. Ex: I want to buy 200 shares, market order. Current Price : $3.25 Seller ask price : $3.30 - 200 shares Will I buy [email protected]$3.25, [email protected]$3.30, or somewhere in between? Thanks for the great videos.

Thank you SO much. This was confusing me to the extreme & couldn't find anyone to thoroughly explain & also show me how this works. You did that perfectly, thank you.

Hi, I placed an order to buy 10,000 shares at the market price when it was 365 and my order executed at 369. I wanted to sell at 369... Why did that happen? Please Help.. I had a big loss at that trade. Shouldn't the executed price have been 356? I could see the price go high in the executed price section until the status changed to fully executed. Is it because even though I placed the order at 365, there weren't 10,000 shares at that price and just 5000? Doest it only get executed when ALL shares are available at that price only? Also, does it mean that even if I limit my order, it won't get executed UNTIL all 10k shares are available at THAT price even though the current price is same as the limit price I placed my order at?

Why does a market order go in so fast and a limit order usually settles please explain
AJN81 (1 year ago)
Sasha Evdakov ok I get that so far but when you do sell a limit order do you get that amount right away a or wait for someone to buy for that price? Thx

Sasha, I'm familiar with Market Orders, I can sell at any time with them. Does this also apply with Limit Orders? Lets say I set my limit and I was able to buy at that limit, can I sell at any time I see fit? Thanks in advance and thanks for the video
WBR 100 (1 year ago)
Perfect. My order was filled today! Now to wait til the time is right. Thanks again

So if you buy a market order for 1 share for $12, and then say the next day when the market closes and instead of just $12 per share, it's now something like $24, you made 12 dollars off of that correct? Because it's a market order, it just ends when the market closes that day? May have been a dumb question, but I'm a little confused on that basic part.
Larry Tk (2 years ago)
Thanks for clearing that up Sasha! For some reason I always thought that in order to set a limit order, I had to set the price lower than the Market price, when in reality, I could set it both higher OR lower than market price.
Michael Perry (2 years ago)
So, glad that you did a lesson on this for the people that would have a hard time figuring it out. I did when I first started. Using limit order helps keep you focused in on your plan and not be all over the place and chasing stocks. Great Job Sasha!
jeremy either (2 years ago)
Sasha, would a limit order be practical in such a scenario that you could predict a variable low using arbitrary points of reference concerning growth potential. In this manner you purchase the stock at what u predict its lowest price will be in he near future. or am I way off the mark here?
jeremy either (2 years ago)
+Sasha Evdakov (TradersFly) sorry I realized how ambiguous it sounded. I have a bad habit for that. Im delighted you responded and lovr your channel btw. Never mind next time ill be more clear.
