Is there always going to be a buyer for what you are selling?
00:58 Mins Read
This video sets out to answer a very common question: 'Will there always be a buyer for the assets you sell?'
When you place a sell order for your stocks online, the sale generally occurs relatively quickly, isn’t it? But there may not always be a buyer for what you are selling. Finding a buyer may be difficult if the stock you hold has low liquidity. It may also be tough to sell your holdings if there are more sellers than buyers in the market. A large bid-ask spread may be another reason for not finding a buyer. And lastly, if the company whose stocks you hold has been delisted from the exchange, there may be no buyers for your stocks. You can work around some of these situations by placing the right kind of order. Head to the next chapter in this module to learn about the different types of orders.
