Buy ask/Sell bid - Isn't that just a market order?

Hi all,

The trade box window in Sierra Chart has the following buttons..

Buy Mkt
"Buy Ask" - (Limit order)
Buy Bid

Sell Mkt
Sell Ask
"Sell Bid" - (Limit order)



What's the deal/thought process with this.. isn't that just a market order, apparently it is a limit order.. why..
