Step 2: Select your number of shares. 

The number of shares you buy—of any stock—all depends on several factors. Consider:

  • How much you can spend
  • The percentage of your portfolio these shares represent
  • The stock’s stability or lack thereof
  • The market’s stability

Step 3: Choose an order type.

Choosing the order type for your investments is just as important as investing money and seeking a return. Using the proper order types can help you save money, earn money and prevent losses. 

Market orders buy and sell at current market rates. Because they fluctuate all the time, you want to make sure you can complete these transactions right away.

Stop-loss orders stop your losses. You set a low price that sells off your stock before it plummets.

Stop-limit orders set a higher price, selling off the stop before it has a chance to peak and plummet, effectively erasing your profits.

Immediate or cancel orders must be completed right then. If that is not possible, the order cancels so that you do not accidentally buy or sell at the wrong price.

All or none orders do not happen unless it is possible for you to purchase or sell as many shares as the order contains.

Step 4: Execute your trade.

Press a button and complete your trade. Check your dashboard. Are you happy with your current position? Do all your orders look correct? When you know your account is in good order, you can make your next move.
