Good After Time Orders
|Top Previous Next|
Sometimes you may need to trade on a market whose trading hours are not convenient for you. For example, the Japanese Stock Exchange opens at 9 a.m. JST (Japanese Standard Time), which is 2 a.m. in Western Europe. There is a good chance that you will be asleep at that hour. In that case, you can request that Delta Trading places an order for you when the Japanese market opens.
Good After Time orders are Market, Limit, Stop, or OCO orders which will be placed by the system at a predefined point in time. In addition to all instructions included in the order, such as volume, type, and price, you can also set the moment in time at which the order will be activated by the system. Good After Time orders always are executed in Click and Deal mode.
