What is a Limit Order?
A LimitOrder is when you set the price at which you want to buy or sell a stock. Youset a market order to buy at $100, which means that you will be sold shares atexactly $100. Sometimes they can even sell at the best price - say, $99. However,definitely not more expensive than $100, because you set such condition.
LimitOrders help to avoid slippage that is possible with market orders. But at thesame time, they have a drawback - in order for a limit order to be executed,market prices must be close enough to it, and the seller must purposefully“hit” your order. If there is no one willing to make a deal at your price, thenthe order may remain unexecuted. It'll just keep queuing and you won't get thestock.
In simple terms, the essence of the Limit Order canbe explained as follows. When you place a buy Limit Order, you are telling themarket: “I want to buy these shares, but I'm not in a hurry and I'm not readyto overpay. If anyone is interested, I'm here and here's my price. Sell on itor cheaper! If no one wants it, it's fine, I'll wait.”
