  • Limit order

Limit order: The user needs to specify the price and quantity of the order. The limit order specifies the highest price that users are willing to buy or the lowest price that they are willing to sell. After the user sets the limit price, the market will prioritize the transaction at a price that is favorable to the user. Limit orders can be used to open and close positions.The unfilled part is automatically converted into a pending order and waiting for a deal. 

Open position limit order will occupy the margin.Close position limit order will occupy the orders available to close in the users’ account.


Assume that the latest price of the current BTC contract is 8800 USD. A user wants to open long at $ 8700 USD. When the price drops to less than or equal to 8700 USD, the order will be automatically completed;On the contrary, the latest BTC contract price is 8800 USD, and the user sets a buy price of 8810 USD to open a long position,Your order will be executed immediately at the current optimal price 8800 USD.
