Why is my Market or Stop Order price executed differently from the placed price?
Modified on: Mon, 28 Aug, 2023 at 12:47 PM
When a Market or Stop Order is triggered at a specific price, the order is executed and immediately begins to match the prevailing order available in the order book. The mechanism of a Market Order carries a risk of the order executing at an average execution price above or below your Market trigger price. The bigger the move in price, the larger the difference between your order price and the average execution price will be.
