Order type for setting offsetsDescription

Limit order

The distance from the best price (from best bid or best ask) to which a limit order will be placed when buying and selling with a limit using hotkeys, as well as when pressing the SELL LMT / BUY LMT buttons in the trading module. This value can be either positive or negative.

Stop orders

With the offset set, clicking on BUY STP / SELL STP will result in a stop-limit order, the limit price of which will be set with an offset from the stop price. If the offset is not set, when you click on BUY STP / SELL STP, a stop market order will be placed.

Trigger order

When a trigger order with a configured offset is triggered in the terminal, a limit order with a corresponding offset from the trigger price will be sent to the exchange. If the offset is not configured, a market order will be sent to the exchange, when a trigger order is triggered in the terminal.

Take Profit

With a configured offset, TP will be placed as a Stop Limit order.

Stop Loss

With a configured offset, SL will be placed as a Stop Limit order.
