Limit Order

A Limit order is triggered at a price designated by you when entering the order, and it will be filled at the limit price or better. If the market price never reaches your limit price, the order will not be filled. 


Assume the current market price is $20:


1) If you submit a buy limit order at $18, and later the market price drops to $18, the buy limit order will be triggered and filled at a price no more than $18 (assuming enough shares trade to fill your order and any other similarly priced limit orders in the market ahead of you in the queue).


2) If you submit a sell limit order at $22, and later the market price rises to $22, the sell limit order will be triggered and filled at a price no less than $22 (assuming enough shares trade to fill your order and any other similarly priced limit orders in the market ahead of you in the queue).
