The limit price is the price at which you want a limit order to be fulfilled or better.
  • A limit order buy can only be executed at the limit price or lower
  • A limit order sell can only be executed at the limit price or higher
The price you set for limit orders depends on how quickly you want the order to fill, and your opinion on where the price will be in the future. If you are willing to wait and think that the price will move in your favor in the future, then just set the limit buy or sell price to where you think the price will move in the future. If you want the limit order to fill as quickly as possible, look at the current order book to determine your limit price. You can find the order book under the "Order Book" tab at the bottom of your order form.
