I am ready to make my first purchase and need some last minute advice.

1. My options are:
a. Market
b. Limit
c. Stop
d. Stop Limit
e. Market on Close

Based on what I have read I should place my order as "Market"?

2. What time of the day should I buy. Obviouly when the price is at it's lowest but is there a better time?

3. Also I am looking at multiple positions of the following stocks.
25 of GMG-B
30 of BWLD
30 of UA
30 of FOSL
15 of NTGR

My question is is it wise to purchase small amounts like this or should I concentrate on larger positions of fewer stocks?

Thanks in advance.
