Currently, in Shares, you have 3 order types available for purchasing an asset and one order type available for selling an asset.
If you have access to trade stocks and/or ETFs, please note that the orders are executed only when the market is open. You can check more about when the market is open here: Market hours.
Here are the different order types and their details:
Market order (Buy and Sell orders)
Market orders are executed immediately when the market is open and at the best possible price available at the moment of execution.
Stock and ETFs orders that are scheduled when the market is closed will appear as pending orders and will be executed at the next market open.
Market orders are available for both buy and sell orders.
Recurring orders (Buy only)
Recurring orders are automated orders that are executed over a period of time. Recurring orders allow you to specify the parameters according to your needs. You can specify the following parameters while setting up recurring orders;
You can specify the amount of your choice for the recurring order. Every order that recurs is set up for the same amount that you have specified while initially setting up the recurring order.
Daily: Choose to buy once day, every day
Weekly: Choose a day to buy once a week, every week
Monthly: Choose a day to buy once a month, every month
If you have access to trade stocks and/or ETFs, please note that while setting the frequency, you will have the option to set them up only to be executed on days when the market is open (Monday - Friday, excluding public holidays). The recurring order is executed on the date set, 1 hour after the market opens.
