What is the difference between a limit and market order?

Videos
Market order
Think of a market order as paying the market price when buying or really selling a stock, meaning you would pay whatever price is necessary to get your shares.

Limit order
When it comes to a limit order, you get to specify the price you want to pay for the stock. You get favorable pricing, but you may not get filled with your order if your price is not met.

When should you use market order or limit order?
When do you use one of the other? Well, market order is great if you need to get into a stock right away, really fast, typically day trading, and you’re trading liquid stocks.
