Limit orders

Limit orders give you more control to buy or sell shares at a specific price, or better—they can take a little longer to fill.

A limit buy order lets you set the maximum price you’re willing to pay per share. A limit sell order lets you set the minimum price you want to sell at per share.

When investing in US shares, you can’t place a limit order for a fractional number of shares—only whole shares can be purchased when placing a limit order.

Market orders

When the market is open and there are shares available, your order will be placed immediately. There’s no way to confirm when your order for a company or exchange-traded fund (ETF) might fill on Sharesies. Read about order processing times.
