A Limit Order enables you to buy or sell at your chosen price. Your limit order will be executed if the market hits your limit price. Conversely, your order will not be executed if the market does not reach your limit price.

How to use a Limit Order
A Limit Order is one of the most basic and widely used order types as it allows you simply to specify a price and amount you would like to buy or sell.
Example: If the current market price is 250 and I want to buy lower than that at 249, then I would place a limit buy order at 249. If the market reaches 249 and a seller’s ask matches with my bid, my limit order will be executed at 249.
