At the time of placing the order we will have to pay attention to what I am going to explain to you now . We will be able to proceed to place a limit or market order. Imagine that you plan to buy a share of Helvetia Holding AG, but its current price is quite high. With the limit order we will enter the value at which we want to make the operation and until there are no shares for sale at a certain value, the acquisition of the share will not be executed. With a market order DeGiro will buy the number of shares we have suggested at the actual selling price, which will be closely related to the current trading price.

In one case or another it is essential that you look at the order: permanent or of the day . As an example, in Spain, the stock market is in the morning and until 1 in the afternoon, and in the United States it coincides with the afternoon schedule in Spain. If the order is fixed, it will remain until the point where it can be executed, but if you select the “of the day” option, at the time the trading session ends, if it has not been executed, it will be removed from your Activity file – Orders in process.
