What types of orders are there?

With Vattenfall's classic market access, we offer the order types Limit Order, Market Order or Stop Trigger. With different order types, buyers and sellers set prices or price corridors at which they want to buy or sell. If the price is reached, the buy or sale is executed. By setting it in advance, trading participants reduce their risks.

How does a limit order work?

A limit order is not executed at the next possible time, but at the fixed - or even better - price.


In this way, a trader ensures that a purchase or sale is only executed at his or her desired price. Particularly in the case of goods or shares with strong price fluctuations, a limit order reduces the risk.

How does a market order work?

A market order is an unlimited order for a buy or sell. This is not linked to a price, but should be executed in any case and as soon as possible.
