Trade Types

BlockEx Markets currently offer several types of order types:

Market, Limit and Stop

Limit Order

An order placed to buy or sell a set number of units at a specified price or better. Because the limit order is not a market order, it may not be executed if the price set by the investor cannot be met during the period of time in which the order is left open. This is a standard normally expected order type.

Stop Loss Order

There are two types of stop-loss orders:

Sell-stop orders protect long positions by triggering a market sell order if the price falls below a certain level. The underlying assumption behind this strategy is that if the price falls this far, it may continue to fall much further, so the loss is capped by selling at this price.

Buy-stop orders are conceptually the same as sell stops except that they are used to protect short positions. A buy-stop order price will be above the current market price and will trigger if the price rises above that level.

Iceberg Orders

A large single order that has been divided into smaller lots, usually through the use of an automated program, for the purpose of hiding the actual order quantity.

When large participants, such as institutional investors, need to buy and sell large amounts of securities for their portfolios, they can divide their large orders into smaller parts so that the public sees only a small portion of the order at a time – just as the ‘tip of the iceberg’ is the only visible portion of a huge mass of ice. By hiding its large size, the iceberg order reduces the price movements caused by substantial changes in a stock’s supply and demand.
