Your mileage may vary, Arindam.

When I look at the 30 day chart on DDT, I see spikes across the chart. That is bid ask spread market orders. A limit order takes some patience but usually gets your trade in at close to the last buy or sell.

Sure if bid ask is narrow a market order is fine. But that is not always the case.
