Market Order

In the context of stock options, a market order is an order to sell stock associated with an exercise at whatever the market price of the stock is when the trade is entered. Compare this with a limit order, which sets a minimum stock price before the options will be exercised. For details on the different types of sell orders, which apply to any stock in your accounts, see a detailed FAQ elsewhere on this website.
