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..

Are you asking what the difference between market orders and limit orders is?
