There are two fundamental execution options when buying or selling: place the order "at market" or "at limit."
'At Market' Orders
Market orders are transactions meant to execute as quickly as possible at the current market price. A sell will match the highest buyer and a buy order will match the lowest seller.
A limit order allows you, the investor, to specify the price at which your shares can be sold at or at which price you're happy to pay to buy a particular price.
You need to be aware of the expiry date in which you've set your order, as well. All orders on the SelfWealth platform are defaulted to expire at the end of that trading day. If you wish for the order to stay in the market longer, you will need to set a future date. We currently do not offer an 'until cancelled' option.
