Placing an order

This guide walks you through all aspects of placing an order with the Investment API, including the related cash balance and position updates.

Orders can be created as nominal orders, i.e. buying/selling a security for a specified amount (e.g. EUR 1,000), or as unit orders, i.e. buying/selling a security by specifying the quantity of securities (e.g. 10 shares).

In this guide we'll provide examples of both a nominal buy order and a unit sell order to illustrate this functionality.
