Sell Order

What does Sell Order mean?

A Sell Order occurs when an investor goes through an exchange to sell part of all of their holdings of an asset.

Sell orders can be very straight forward, such as market orders that specify the asset should be sold immediately at whatever the market price happens to be.

They can also be more complex, with the investor specifying the price, time frame, or a certain percentage o holding to be sold.

Online exchanges typically have forms that can be filled and submitted to place the sell order, but some cryptocurrency exchanges also provide live support that can be contacted to place a sell order.
