I’m back with another lesson: Why you should never use a market order.

A market order means that you’re willing to pay whatever price the market is willing to give it to you. You could be overpaying by a dollar or more!

With a limit order, you specify the price you’re willing to buy up to. Using very specific limit prices can help you limit risk.

Don’t fall for the brokers’ bait! So many traders have this false idea they can get rich by saving on commissions … they won’t.

Remember that a majority of traders lose. Why do they lose? Mostly due to lack of preparation and not being meticulous.

I would rather teach you a process — a process where you manage your risk and trade hot stocks. But you do it responsibly, and stay educated.

So, use limit orders and use them responsibly. Remember, it’s ok to miss out on fast-moving plays. No stock is ever worth the risk of using a market order!

Do you use limit orders [or market orders]? Why or why not? Leave a comment below.

I use robinhood but I use robinhood…..what are you guys using to trade?

teigrgwyn says:

at least with market orders, you're in and you're progressing with the move, even if it's making you less profit in the end, at least you can make money, unlike the limit order guy that keeps raising his limit trying to get shares and can't

i would argue you need to make sure the move beats the demand rather than the other way around, if the demand beats the move, you're going to pay too much and not make profit, because everybody else has already been reduced to skimming pennies, so why try to compete for scraps at that point?

if you find yourself trying to get into a stock where the demand beats the move, yes, a market order will skrew your profits, but a limit order will prevent you from even getting in… but you should instead choose a stock that makes an appropriately sized move for an appropriately sized demand, otherwise you're just chasing

takes too much time to calculate volatility mentally and set a limit accordingly, so hitting market order to get in immediately i argue gets you in quicker and you make more of the full move, and make more money

MrWebster773 says:

This is a informative video about the dangers of using market orders. My only problem with this video is that Robinhood actually has "limit, stop limit and stop loss " in addition to market orders.

But then again I'm just an internet random… who are you to take my word as facts (do your own research folks) 🤪

Jonathan Fox says:

Yes always use limit orders and double especially on OTC market stocks.. have learned the hard way.

The Storm says:

If I may add here…only in certain circumstances you should only buy on the ask and just let a trade come to you…

Ryan Burns says:

Except Robinhood does have limit orders. Not saying I would use Robinhood for penny stocks, but if your going to call someone an “idiot” you might want to have your facts straight first.

Kristofer Saly says:

Great fucking video!

Corbin H. says:

This has been explained by fausto 100 times…..if your doing big orders you use a big boys direct access broker,,,,not a payment for order flow broker….
