We support 3 different order types at the moment - market orders in dollars, market orders in shares and limit orders.

Market Orders In Dollars
This order type allows you to input your order in a dollar amount, starting with a minimum of $1. You trade at the market price and your order is executed immediately at the available market price (if the market is open). If the market is closed, a pending order is created and your order will be executed once the market opens.

Market Orders In Shares
This order type allows you to input your order in numbers of shares, starting at 0.000000001, but subject to a minimum of $1. You trade at the market price and your order is executed immediately at the available market price (if the market is open). If the market is closed, a pending order is created and your order will be executed once the market opens.

Limit Order
This order type allows you to input your order in share amounts starting at 1 (fractional shares are not supported for limit orders). The goal with a limit order is to define the price you're willing to trade at (the "limit price") and your execution will be at the limit price, or better than the limit price. For example, if you set an order to buy 1 share of Apple at a limit price of $125, the order will only execute at $125, or lower than $125. Limit Orders placed on the Gotrade app are good-until-cancelled, which means they will remain queued either until they execute, or you cancel the queued order. It is good practice to monitor your queued orders regularly and cancel any that you no longer want.
