When you hold shares that are registered directly with Air Liquide, you can place your stock market orders via your personal online Account (subject to have signed an account agreement), and thus benefit from a reduced brokerage rate of 0.10% before tax instead of 0.18% before tax for purchases paid in full by SEPA automatic debit (if the account is domiciled in the SEPA zone) or by bank card (for purchases below €3,000), as well as for sales.

Choosing the right stock order
To trade on the stock exchange, you can place an order with your regular financial intermediary or directly with Air Liquide if you are a direct registered shareholder. The most frequently used stock orders are as follows:
"Limit price" order
You set a maximum buy or minimum sell order (limit). The buy order is executed only when the market price is lower than or equal to this limit and the sell order when the market price is higher than or equal to this limit. The order may be partially executed if the quantity of negotiable shares on the market is not available at the set limit price.
"Best price" order
You did not specify an exact price. The order will be executed at the best price available when it reaches the market, for both buy and sell orders. The order may be partially executed if the quantity of negotiable shares on the market is not available at this best price.
"Market price" order
There is no price limit on this order. This order is given priority over all other types of orders. It is fully executed.
