By analogy with stores that sell goods in small wholesale, such as METRO C &C, the exchange sells shares in lots formed from several shares or from 1 share. This is the lot. The lot must be taken into account when calculating the bid price, i.e. if the current share price is 11 rubles, and 1 lot consists of 10 shares, then the transaction value will be 11 * 10 = 110 rubles, not 11 rubles.

The exchange works according to the request from the broker, which in turn works according to your request. In the application, you give the broker an order, specify the direction of the transaction “Buy” or “Sell”, the number of lots, the price of the application, a number of conditions for the execution of the application, if necessary. The request is not a transaction until it is executed. The application is made free of charge and can be deleted at any time until it turns into a deal.

There are market orders (executed immediately at the nearest price), conditional orders (executed at the price specified in the order, the price is usually lower than the current one when buying or higher than the current one when selling), conditional orders are stop limit, stop loss, take profit orders (triggered when a certain condition occurs). Let’s look at them in more detail below using the TRANSAQ example. The description is also suitable for Quick software.
