A market order is an instruction to buy or sell a CFD in a specified size at the best available market price for that size. It is important to note that a market order can be executed at a price different from the one quoted at the time it is placed if the market price moves during your execution.

Once executed, a market order immediately becomes an open trade that can be tracked in the ‘Portfolio’ tab. Market orders can only be placed during the trading hours. Additionally, a market order can have take-profit/stop-loss orders attached.
