What is the limit price (also called 'limit order') for share trading?
With a limit-price order, you set the maximum amount you’re willing to buy a share at, or the minimum you’re willing to sell a share at. So if your limit price for buying a share is $1.15, your order will only trade if the share price drops to $1.15 or less – and vice versa for sell limits. You can place a limit-price order any time between market ‘pre-open’ and ‘pre-close’. Limit-price orders will be put into a queue waiting to match with a buyer or seller.
If queued, a limit order will remain on the market for 20 business days after which it will expire.
