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 allow you to buy or sell shares at the available market price in line with our Best Price Policy. 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.
