A spot trade is a simple transaction between a buyer and a seller to trade at the current market rate, known as the spot price. The trade takes place immediately when the order is fulfilled.
Users can prepare spot trades in advance to trigger when a specific spot price is reached, known as a limit order. You can make spot trades on Binance through our trading page interface.

- The default order type is a limit order. If traders want to place an order as soon as possible, they may switch to [Market] Order. By choosing a market order, users can trade instantly at the current market price.
- If the market price of BNB/BTC is at 0.002, but you want to buy at a specific price, for example, 0.001, you can place a [Limit] order. When the market price reaches your set price, your placed order will be executed.
- The percentages shown below the BNB [Amount] field refer to the percentage amount of your held BTC you wish to trade for BNB. Pull the slider across to change the desired amount.
