    How to Submit Orders using cTrader

    One of the most important features of any trading system is the user order panel where the trader can request market and pending orders to their broker. When an order is created using cTrader, it sends instructions to the broker to execute a trade, this order gives instructions on what instrument to trade and under what conditions. 

    Submitting orders with any trading platform is very important, the trader needs to be able to set-up and execute the trade as easily and quickly as possible so that they enter the market at the right time and with the correct order settings, a small mistake can cost real money.


    Types of Orders

    There are four types of orders to buy or sell while using the cTrader platform, these are Market Order, Limit Order, Stop Order, and Stop Limit Order. Only Market Orders are filled immediately, all other types are filled only when the specific conditions are met.
