Order Types

    Market Order
    To buy or sell securities at best available market price immediately
  1. A Market Order is an order to buy or sell a stock at the market price. You do not need to set a limit price and your order will be executed at best available market price at time of execution.
  2. Hong Kong Market
    • Market Order will only be accepted during Hong Kong Stock Exchange's Continuous Trading Session (09:30 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm HKT).
    US Market
    • Market Order will only be accepted during normal trading hours (9:30 am - 4:00 pm US Eastern Time) of stock exchanges in US.
    Other Markets
    • Market Order can be inputted any time.
  3. No. Only "One Day Order" for "Market Order" is available.
  4. When placing a Market Buy Order, fund will be withheld based on the "Upper Limit Price". The excess fund withheld will be released after the order is executed.

    For Hong Kong and US markets, the "Upper Limit Price" is based on the stock's current 'ask' price plus certain spreads determined by MONEX BOOM from time to time.

    For other markets, the "Upper Limit Price" is based on the stock's previous closing price plus its "daily maximum price fluctuation", which is determined by the respective stock exchange(s).
  5. If you do not have enough buying power to place a Market Buy Order, you can reduce the quantity. Our system will calculate the maximum number of shares you may place a Market Buy Order for your reference.

    Alternatively, you may place a Limit Buy Order. If your Limit Price is higher than the current ask price, your order will be executed at the best price in the market - just like placing a Market Buy Order.
  6. Yes. You can still place an order to execute at market price, even if Market Order is not an available order type for that market.

    To BUY
    • Place a Buy Limit Order with a Limit Price higher than the current ask price.
    To SELL
    • Place a Sell Limit Order with a Limit Price lower than the current bid price.

    Example of placing Limit Order to execute at market price:

    If you want to sell a stock currently trading at $20, by placing a Sell Limit Order of $18, your order will be executed at any price higher than or equal to $18.
  7. Points to Note on Market Order
    1. The final execution price of your Market Order may differ from the nominal price at the time of order placement, especially for illiquid stocks and/or at the beginning of a trading session due to orders accumulated that need to be handled.
    2. Depending on the market conditions, your Market Order may be partially executed or may not be executed if there is not enough stock available to fill your order.
    3. Market Order for Hong Kong market will only be accepted and processed during Hong Kong Stock Exchange's Continuous Trading Session (9:30 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm HKT).
    4. Market Order for US markets will only be accepted during normal trading hours (9:30 am - 4:00 pm US Eastern Time) of stock exchanges in US.
    5. Market Order for all other markets can be inputted any time.
    6. Your Market Order can only be valid for one day (i.e. One Day Order).
    7. Odd lot quantities are not acceptable for Market Buy Order.
    8. Amendment of Market Order is not allowed. If you want to modify a Market Buy Order or Market Sell Order, you must cancel it first and then setup another order.
    9. Market Buy Order is only applicable to stocks traded in Hong Kong, US, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Shanghai-B, Shenzhen-B, Taiwan and Thailand markets.
    10. Market Sell Order is applicable to stocks traded in any markets we currently offer.
    11. Illiquid stocks and suspended stocks are not acceptable for Market Order.
    12. Upon submission of a Market Order, you will be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions and understood and accepted all of the features and constraints of this service.
    1. We are authorized but not obliged to accept a Market Order input by the Client. If we do not accept a Market Order it will advise the Client promptly.
    2. We, in our best effort, will try to process a Market Order to obtain the best execution on behalf of our client. Due to fluctuation in stock price, insufficient market liquidity, system failure and any event beyond our control, the order maybe fully, partially or not executed.
    3. We shall not be obliged to act on any instruction for cancellation of a Market Order already given to us nor be responsible or liable to the Client for any loss or expense suffered or incurred by the Client if the original Market Order has already been completed or in our opinion, we have insufficient time or are unable to act on such instruction to cancel the original Market Order.
    4. Once a Market Order is processed on a Trading Day, whether it is fully / partially / not executed, it will then lapse at the end of that Trading Day.
    5. We shall not be liable for any loss, damage or expense or consequential loss, damage or expense suffered by the Client by virtue of any delay or any partial execution or any failure by us to execute a Market Order for any reason whatsoever including without limitation any failure or error of any computer or electronic systems or equipment.
    Limit Order
  1. A Limit Order is an order to buy or sell a stock at or better than a specified price, know as Limit Price. A Buy Limit Order can only be executed at the Limit Price or lower, and a Sell Limit Order can only be executed at the Limit Price or higher.

    Example of Limit Order:

    If the stock is currently trading at $20, you place a Sell Limit Order of $21. Your order will be queued until the market price goes up to $21. If the stock did not reach $21 and then started to fall, your sell Limit Order would not be executed.

    Please note that even if the stock reaches the limit price, your Limit Order may not be executed if there are orders ahead of yours at the same limit price. The orders in line ahead of you must be filled first and there may not be enough stock available to fill your order when your turn comes.
    Stop Limit Order
    A Tool to Minimize Potential Losses
  1. A Sell Stop Order is an order to sell a stock once the price of the stock drops to a specified price, known as the Stop Price. When the specified price is reached, your Sell Stop Order will be sold at market price.

    This is an enhanced trading feature to help you minimize potential losses or protect unrealized gains of your stock holdings.

    In order to place a Sell Stop Order, you can use our Sell Stop-Limit Order function by setting the limit price to a relatively low price.
  2. A Sell Stop-Limit Order is an order to sell a stock once the Stop Price is reached. When triggered, your Sell Stop-Limited Order will be sold at the market price but not lower than the Limit Price.
    • Stop Price is a price below the market price at the time you enter the Sell Stop-Limit Order. Your order will be activated when the Stop Price has been reached or passed. However, even if the Sell Stop-Limit Order is triggered, the execution is not guaranteed, but if executed, the price will be equaled or better than theLimit Price.
    • Limit Price must be lower than the Stop Price. It is the lowest price you are willing to sell the stock. Your order will not be executed at a price below the Limit Price. This is likely to occur in a fast moving market.

    Your Sell Stop-Limit Order must abide by the following rule:

    Market price > Stop Price > Limit Price > $0.01


    Example 1 of Sell Stop-Limit Order:

    You are holding a stock currently trading at $20. You want to sell this stock if price falls to $15, and you do not want to sell the stock for less than $10.

    To achieve this, you can enter a Sell Stop-Limit Order for this stock. You need to set the Stop Price at $15; your order will be activated when the price reaches or goes below $15. You also need to set the Limit Price for sell at $10. Your order will be executed at or better than $10 until your order is fully filled or the price goes below $10. (See diagram below)


    Then, when the market price is falling: -

      Market Price  
     
     
    $20
     
     
       
     
    Your Stop Price
    $15
    <-- Sell Stop-Limit Order is triggered and activated at this point.
     
      <-- The order might be filled at any market price better than $10.
     
    Your Limit Price
    $10
    <-- It is the lowest price we will fill the order for you.
     
     

    <-- Sell Stop-Limit Order will not be executed below $10.


    Example 2 of Sell Stop-Limit Order:

    When you set the Limit Price too close to the Stop Price:

    Following the example 1 above, if you set the Limit Price for sell at $14.95, your order may be queued with other Limit Orders at $14.95 and your order might not be filled.
  3. Points to Note on Sell Stop-Limit Order
    1. The Stop Price must be lower than the Market Price. The Limit Price must be lower than the Stop price and cannot be lower than $0.01. Based on this arrangement, we do not accept any Sell Stop-Limit Order if the current Market Price of such stock is lower than $0.01.
    2. Depending on the market conditions, even when triggered, your Sell Stop-Limit Order may never be executed if the market price surpasses your Limit Price before your order can be filled.
    3. Once the Sell Stop-Limit Order is triggered, it is possible that the order is filled at a price above the Stop Price if the market bounces back quickly. However, if the order is executed, the price will be equal or higher than the Limit Price.
    4. Your Sell Stop-Limit Order will be valid until it is triggered or expired (on the Good Till Date). Once the Stop Price is triggered, any unfilled quantity of the Sell Stop-Limit Order will be expired at the close of the trading date.
    5. Your Sell Stop-Limit Order will be cancelled when (1) the stock is suspended for trading, or (2) the stock price is adjusted significantly due to corporate actions.
    6. Amendment of Sell Stop-Limit Order is not allowed. If you want to modify a Sell Stop-Limit Order, you must cancel it first and then setup another order.
    7. The Sell Stop-Limit Order is only applicable to stocks traded in NYSE MKT, NYSE, NASDAQ & HKEX with reasonable liquidity.
    8. Features of Sell Stop-Limit Order applicable to Hong Kong Market only:
      1. Odd lot quantity Sell Stop-Limit Order for Hong Kong Market is not acceptable.
      2. Your Sell Stop-Limit Order may be triggered in the Pre-opening Session, but will only be executed in the Continuous Trading Session.
    9. Features of Sell Stop-Limit Order applicable to US Market only:
      1. Your Sell Stop-Limit Order will be triggered if either the last traded price, or best bid price, or best offer price (depends on the practices of the stock exchanges or market specialist that executed the trades of the relevant stock) reaches or drop below your Stop Price.
      2. Your Sell Stop-Limit Order will only be triggered or executed during the core trading hours.
    10. Upon submission of a Sell Stop-Limit Order, you will be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions and understood and accepted all of the features and constraints of this service.
    1. We are authorized but not obliged to accept a Sell Stop-Limit Order input by the Client. If we do not accept a Sell Stop-Limit Order it will advise the Client promptly.
    2. We will try its best to process a Sell Stop-Limit Order but it may NOT be performed due to fluctuation in stock price, insufficient market liquidity, system failure and any event beyond our control. The order may be fully executed, partially executed or even unexecuted.
    3. We shall not be obliged to act on any instruction for cancellation, variation or amendment of a Sell Stop-Limit Order already given to us nor be responsible or liable to the Client for any loss or expense suffered or incurred by the Client if the original Sell Stop-Limit Order has already been completed or in our opinion, we has insufficient time or is unable to act on such instruction to cancel, vary or amend the original Sell Stop-Limit Order.
    4. Any Sell Stop-Limit Order if not triggered on any Trading Day will be carried over to the next Trading Day until it is triggered or it is expired on the Good Till Date. Once it is triggered on a Trading Day but either not executed at all or only partially executed, it will then lapse at the end of that Trading Day even if it has not then expired.
    5. Any Sell Stop-Limit Order that is triggered may be executed in full or in part at any price between the Stop Price and the Limit Price. It will not be executed at a price below the Limit Price. If it is not executed at all or in full between the Stop Price and the Limit Price and the market price then rises above the Stop Price, the Sell Stop-Limit Order may be executed in full or in part at the then market price being a price higher than the Stop Price.
    6. We shall not be liable for any loss, damage or expense or consequential loss, damage or expense suffered by the Client by virtue of any delay or any partial execution or any failure by us to execute a Sell Stop-Limit Order or any execution above the Stop Price for any reason whatsoever including without limitation any failure or error of any computer or electronic systems or equipment.

    1. To set up a "Chain Order", a "parent order" and a "dependent order" must be entered at the same time. There must be only one "parent order" and one "dependent order" in a Chain Order.
    2. Separate brokerage, other fees and charges apply to both the "parent order" and the "dependent order" of a "Chain Order".
    3. Both "parent order" and "dependent order" allow any combination of trading markets and order types currently offer by us. Restriction and constraints of each trading market and order type still applies. However, market order is not allowed as a "dependent order" if you have set the same stock for "parent order" and "dependent order".
    4. here is no validation on the buying power or stock holdings when "dependent order" is entered. Such checking will be performed when your "dependent order" is activated. If there is insufficient fund or stock holdings, the "dependent order" will be cancelled.
    5. When you enter a "parent order", you can set the expiry date (Good Till Date) up to 30 calendar days from time of entering the "Chain Order". Your "parent order" will be processed for execution at your specified price within the validity of your pre-set period.
    6. Your "parent order" will be valid until it is fully executed, cancelled or expired. Any unfilled quantity of the "parent order" will be expired at the end of the Good Till Date.
    7. When you enter a "dependent order", you can set the expiry date up to 30 calendar days counting from the time the "dependent order" is activated. The Good Till Date is the last day of this valid period. Your "dependent order" will be processed for execution at your specified price within the validity of your pre-set period.
    8. Your "dependent order" is triggered and activated ONLY upon the complete execution of the "parent order". Once the "dependent order" is activated, your "dependent order will be valid until it is fully executed or cancelled or expired (on the Good Till Date). Any unfilled quantity of the "dependent order" will be expired at the end of the Good Till Date.
    9. Depends on market condition, the "dependent order" once activated, can be fully executed immediately.
    10. If the "parent order" is only partially filled, the "dependent order" will not be activated. If the "parent order" is expired or cancelled, the "dependent order" will be cancelled all together. If the "parent order" is rejected, the "dependent order" will not be activated and will be cancelled by system.
    11. Before your "parent order" is completely executed, the un-filled "parent order" can be changed or cancelled.
    12. Before your "dependent order" is completely executed, the un-filled "dependent order" can be changed or cancelled.
    13. "Dependent order" can be cancelled separately from its "parent order". Afterwards, you can then setup another "dependent order" to the original "parent order".
    14. Your "dependent order" may be cancelled by the system automatically under certain conditions. Those conditions include, but not limited to,
      1. "dependent order" is cancelled because it becomes invalid, e.g. at the time the "dependent order" is activated, (1) there are insufficient funds or stock holdings; (2) dependent order is invalid (e.g. stop price is higher than the market price for stop limit order); (3) stock related to your dependent order is suspended from trading; or
      2. "dependent order" is cancelled because respective "parent order" becomes invalid, e.g. (1) you have cancelled the ‘parent order'; (2) "parent order" is expired after the Good Till Date; (3) when the stock price of your parent order is adjusted significantly due to corporate actions, your "parent order" will then be cancelled by our system; (4) if you have set the "parent order" as a Sell Stop-Limit Order, it will be cancelled by our system if the related stock is suspended from trading.
    15. When your "dependent order" is activated or cancelled by the system, a notification email will be sent to you immediately. However, if you cancelled the "parent order" manually, no notification email will be generated.
    16. If your "dependent order" is a Sell Stop-Limit Order, amendment is not allowed. If you want to modify a "dependent order" that is a Sell Stop-Limit Order, you must cancel it first and then setup another "dependent order". Upon entering a Sell Stop-Limit Order as a "parent order" or a "dependent order", you will be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions and understood and accepted all of the features and constraints of the Sell Stop-Limit Order.
