Limit Order
June 07 , 2012

A limit order is a request to buy or sell shares at a specified price. It is in contrast to the 'Market Order', where a purchase or sale price is not specified.

For instance, assume the last traded price of Infosys is Rs 3,000. I can place a limit order to purchase 10 shares of Infosys at Rs 2,990. In such a case, no purchase happens till the share price drops to this level. The moment it drops to Rs 2,990 or below, the purchase order is executed. Most limit orders are valid for the remaining duration of the trading hours of that particular day.
