The technicality of buying a stock

The technicality of buying a stock

Every stock has a bid price and an offer (or "ask") price. “You sell to the bid, and you buy from the ask.”

When you are buying a stock, you can use 2 different kinds of orders:

  1. market order: this order tells the broker to get you into the stock as quickly as possible, regardless of price.
  2. limit order: specifies a price.
