  • Limit Order : 

    A limit order is one placed by an investor with a stockbroker to buy a specified number of shares at or below a specified price or to sell a specified number of shares at or above a specified price. A limit order ensures that an investor will not pay more for the shares than the price they have set as the limit and neither will an investor receive less than they are willing to accept. It is a very common type of order.
