What type of limit should I choose when placing an order?The online trading 1816 platform allows the user to define different order types, with or without limits. An explanation on how they work is provided below.
A buy limit order is used when the user decides on a maximum price that he does not wish to exceed to buy a security, over a defined period of time.
For example, the investor decides to buy at a maximum price of CHF 102. The order is placed for a given time and will only be executed if the security price is equal to or below CHF 102.
A buy stop-loss-order only triggers an order when the security has reached a certain price.
For example, a person only wants to buy a security if the price reaches CHF 102. He hopes to detect a trend, he thinks that the price of the security will rise and therefore wishes to buy it as from this price which will trigger a market order.
By selecting the stop limit feature, the order will be triggered if the price of the security reaches a defined threshold, while setting a maximum price that the investor does not wish to exceed.
For example, the 1816 platform user only wants to buy if the security reaches CHF 102 but not if it exceeds CHF 103. Once the order is triggered, it appears in the market as an order with a limit at CHF 103.
A sell limit order is used when the user decides on a minimum price that he does not wish to exceed to sell a security, over a defined period of time.
For example, the platform user decides not to sell for less than CHF 98. The order is placed for a given time and will only be executed if the share price exceeds CHF 98.
For example, a person only wants to sell if the security falls to CHF 98 or less. He thinks that it will fall again and wishes to sell before incurring greater losses. From CHF 98, a market order is triggered.
For example, the investor wishes to sell only if the security falls to CHF 98 but not below CHF 97. Once the order is triggered, it appears in the market as an order with a limit at CHF 97.
