An Market if Touched (MIT) is an order to buy (or sell) below (or above) the market.
An MIT order is not guaranteed a specific execution price and may execute significantly away from its stop trigger price. An MIT order is similar to a stop order, except that an MIT sell order is placed above the current market price, and a stop sell order is placed below.
The order follows the "buy low and sell high" rule. The trigger price and the market price need to follow the rules: the buy trigger price needs to be lower than the current market price, and the sell trigger price needs to be higher than the current market price.
A buy MIT order must be entered below the current market price to gain the profit of a short position.
● Buy MIT order
Assuming you short sell stock XYZ at 30, you submit a buy MIT order with a trigger price of 15 when the market price is 40. If XYZ's market price falls to 15 or lower, a buy market order will be submitted automatically to the clearing broker and filled at the market price.
Assuming stock XYZ has a current price of 10, you submit a sell MIT order with a trigger price of 15. If XYZ's market price rises to 15, a sell market order will be submitted automatically to the clearing broker and filled at the market price.
Clients can place orders at any time via the app.
Clients can set the order's Time-in-force. If the order is not filled in full, the unfilled portion will be cancelled automatically by the system. If the order fails to be executed due to risk management or other reasons, the order status will update to "failed," and the system will not continue to place the order.
If the order reaches the trigger condition during the preset trading period, the system will automatically submit the order to the clearing broker. The MIT order will not be triggered if the trigger condition is met outside the preset trading period.
5.1 After the MIT order is triggered, there is no guarantee that the order will be successfully placed. Reasons such as insufficient buying power and positions will cause a failure to place the order.
5.2 After the MIT order is triggered, the system will place a market order automatically when the trigger price is touched. However, there is no guarantee that the order will be filled.If the order is not filled during the Time-in-force, it will be cancelled automatically by the system.
The market order notes are as follows.
(1) After you confirm the submission of a market order, Moomoo Financial Singapore Pte. Ltd. will submit it to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange at the five best bid or ask prices according to the buy or sell instruction.
(2) A market order may be divided into several small orders for execution, and each small order may be filled at a different price.
(3) If the number of placed orders is small, a market order may not be fully filled. The unfilled part will be automatically cancelled and, after being cancelled, will be in "Cancelled" status.
(4) If the liquidity of a stock is poor or there is no placed order for the time being, a market order may not be filled and will be automatically cancelled. After being cancelled, the order will be in "Cancelled" status.
(5) For a market order, we do not guarantee a better execution price. In particular, a market order may be filled at a higher or lower price when the market changes rapidly.
(6) During the trading hours when the morning session or afternoon session has just opened, there may be a greater chance that transaction prices will deviate since orders that have accumulated before the market opens need to be processed.
(7) For the sake of risk control, the price of a market order put on hold in the system is calculated as the current price * market order multiplier, and the market order multiplier is subject to adjustment by Moomoo Financial Singapore Pte. Ltd. from time to time according to market conditions. Your buying power will be reduced accordingly. After the order is filled or cancelled, the frozen part of your buying power will be released.
5.3 After the MIT order is triggered, whether it is filled or not, the trigger conditions will not be effective again. Please place a new order if necessary.
5.4 After the MIT order is triggered, the system will place a market order. For clients' convenience, the order details will be displayed in the original MIT order.
5.5 After the MIT order is triggered, the system will submit the order only when the client has enough maximum buying power on the account, and financing may be applied.
5.6 Orders cannot be executed in multiple directions at the same time. If the order quantity is greater than the current position, the order will not be executed. For example, a buy and a buyback cannot be executed simultaneously; the same applies to a sell and a short sale.
5.7 The MIT order will only be triggered during the regular trading hours.
5.8 Advanced orders are simulated by Moomoo Financial Singapore Pte. Ltd. based on the basic orders and are irrelevant to Exchanges' advanced orders. Please refer to the actual order page for more details.
