A Limit Order is a conditional trade based on set prices determined by the trader. The trade will set a maximum or minimum price for a traded asset. The trade will not be executed unless the trade is made at a particular price (or better). Other conditions can be added to the limit order to accomplish the goals of the trader. With the nature of this trade, it is not guaranteed to be executed.
When placing a limit order, clicking on GTC will show the different types of orders.
The types of limit orders that are supported are listed here:
- GTC - A GTC order is an order that is executed at a specified price point, regardless of the time frame involved in reaching that point.
- GTCPO - A GTCPO is a limit trade that is completed only when it can’t be executed immediately.
- IOC - An immediate or cancel order (IOC) is an order to buy or sell a security that executes all or part immediately and cancels any unfilled portion of the order.
- FOK - Fill or kill (FOK) is a type of time-in-force designation used in securities trading that instructs a brokerage to execute a transaction immediately and completely or not at all.
How to Complete a Limit Order
Here are some tips that you can follow when completing a Limit Order:
🔸 Clicking on one of the prices in the order book will apply that particular price automatically.
🔸 You can also input the exact amount you wish to purchase in the Amount box.
🔸 Another convenient option is the % bar, which can be clicked on to automatically apply a certain percentage of your holdings towards a transaction. In this example, clicking 25% would purchase PROB equal to 25% of your total BTC holdings.
Why Hasn’t My Order been Filled?
Your open order should be reasonably close to the most recently traded price or it will not be filled. Please keep this in mind when designating your specific price.
🔸 Clicking on one of the prices in the orderbook will apply that particular price automatically.
Pending orders that are waiting to be filled will appear in the open order box:
*Important note: You can cancel open orders that appear above in the open order section. If your order isn’t being filled please cancel and place an order closer to the most recently traded price.
If your available balance is showing as empty, please check to see if you have any open orders.
