Stop limit order

With a stop limit order, a limit order is triggered when the trigger price is reached or exceeded.

A stop limit order has the following characteristics:

  1. To use this order type, two different prices must be set:
    Trigger price: the price at which the order is triggered, which is set by you. When the last traded price reaches the trigger price, the limit order is placed.
    Limit Price: The maximum price at which you want your limit order filled. Your order will be filled for this price (or better).
  2. With a stop limit order you can reach a certain price or better. However, the order does not guarantee that execution will take place as the price may not reach or exceed your limit price.

    Please note: even if trading activities bring the price to your limit order price for a short time, execution may still not occur if other orders before yours take all (or part of) the available digital currency at the current price. to fill.

How the stop limit order works out exactly will be illustrated below using two examples.

Example A

Suppose you only want to buy 10 Bitcoin at a predetermined price that is higher than the current price. You therefore set a stop limit order for the purchase of 10 Bitcoin for the price of up to €999 each at a trigger price of €990 under the following market conditions:

  • The current price of Bitcoin is €980.
  • When the price of Bitcoin reaches or exceeds the trigger price of €990, your order is triggered and turns into a limit order.
  • Depending on supply and demand, your order will be (partially) filled at the limit price of €999 or better.

Example B

Suppose you only want to sell 10 Bitcoin at a predetermined price that is lower than the current price. You therefore set a stop limit order for the sale of 10 Bitcoin at the price of €980 each at a trigger price of € 990 under the following market conditions:

  • The current price of Bitcoin is €999.
  • When the price of Bitcoin reaches or exceeds the trigger price of €990, your order is triggered and turns into a limit order.
  • Depending on supply and demand, your order will be (partially) filled at the limit price of €980 or better.
