OrderBack to Glossary
An order is simply an instruction to your broker to buy or sell an asset on your behalf. Orders generally come in two varieties. Market orders and limit orders. Market orders are instructions to buy or sell at the current price. Limit orders are instructions to buy or sell at a predefined price that is either lower (for buy orders) or higher (for sell orders) than the current market price.
