Market Order

Back to Glossary

A market order is simply an instruction given to your broker to buy or sell a given asset right now at the current market price. There is no guarantee that a market order will be filled at exactly the price you saw when you pressed buy or sell. This is because market orders can be subject to slippage, especially when trading large volumes.
