Order

An instruction, especially to a broker, to buy, sell, or conduct some other transaction involving a security or commodity. For example, if a client wishes to buy 100 shares in AT&T, he/she makes an order to a broker to that effect. Orders may take a number of forms. A market order is an order to conduct a transaction at the current market price. A limit order is an order to conduct a transaction at a stated price or better. A stop order is an order to conduct a transaction at the best available price after a certain stated price is reached. Finally, a stop-limit order is a stop order that becomes a limit order when the stated price (known as the stop price) is reached.
