I just put in my first ever share order - YAY!
I was just curious about how buying 'at limit' instead of at market value works.
My order was for a company who's shares are 0.75c so I thought I would put in an at limit order of 0.70 to get a good price. (The shares have fluctuated a little throughout the day and it has gone down to 0.70, however my order mustn't be anywhere near the front)
How long does it usually take an 'at market' order to go through as opposed to an 'at limit' order. Do you normally try to buy a fraction below the market price?
