    The disadvantage of a market order is that you’re stuck paying the price when the order is executed — possibly not at the price you expected when you placed the order.

Whenever you place a market order, especially if you’re seeking a large number of shares, the probability is even greater that you’ll receive different prices for parts of the order — 100 shares at $25 and 100 shares at $25.05, for example.
