What is a limit order

Limit order needs to specify the transaction price, and will only be executed when the specified price is reached or there is a better price.


1. Available Time

1.1 Pre-set Orders

Pre-set orders can be placed after the stock market closes and will be queued for execution on the next trading day. Pre-set orders support setting whether to fill outside RTH.


1.2 Trading Hours
8:00 - 17:00 Eastern Time
Note: 8:00 - 9:30 is the pre-market trading session, 9:30 - 16:00 is the continuous trading session and 16:15 - 17:00 is the post-market trading session of the Canada stock market.

2. Description and Precautions

1. Limit orders that allow filling outside RTH placed in the pre-market/post-market time period will be submitted to the exchange immediately, and the order matching will be matched according to the real-time market price; note that the market bidding price difference in the pre-market and post-market time periods is large, please pay attention to the risks.

2. A buy limit order can only be executed at the limit price or lower, and a sell limit order can only be executed at the limit price or higher. Any unfilled limit orders will be automatically canceled after the market closes.

3. The incompletely filled part of the limit order can be canceled and edited.

4. The original order is still in effect during the process of order modification or cancellation, and there may be situations in which the original order cannot be withdrawn or modified during the modification process.
