How to buy AutoNation (AN) shares through DeGiro

When we have the money we can get our 1st action. You can go to the place order button that is located in the right corner or use the DEGIRO search engine and put the ticker. In the next screenshot you will see that I have put the Amazon ticker but you have to enter (AN), the AutoNation ticker. As we are talking about an action, we will see that the related tickers are listed and there we will see AutoNation. The essential thing is that the ticker, the name of the company and the market in which it is listed coincide. Amazon is listed on Nasdaq (NDQ) and in your case AutoNation, Inc. (AN) is listed on NYSE. This step is essential so do not get confused.

At the moment of making the order we will pay attention to what I will explain to you . We may be able to place a limit or market order. Imagine that you plan to buy a share of AutoNation at 105.33, but its price is currently much higher. With a limit order we will adapt the value at which we want to execute the operation and until there are no shares for sale at this price, the purchase of the share will not be made. With a market order, you will buy the number of shares that we have adjusted to the true selling price, which will be very similar to the current trading price.

In both cases, it is convenient that you look at the type of alignment: fixed or of the day . As an example, in Spain, the stock market is from morning until 1 in the afternoon, and in the United States it corresponds to the afternoon schedule in Spain. If the order is permanent, it will last until the point in which it manages to be executed, but if you choose the “of the day” option, at the moment the trading session ends, if it is not executed, it will be removed from your Activity file – Orders slopes.

Hopefully this simple tutorial will help you to buy stocks on AutoNation.
