Day order definition

A day order is an instruction a trader gives to a broker to buy or sell a security. It is a type of order that is only valid within one trading day. If the order is not filled by the end of the trading day, it is automatically cancelled. A day order can be used in various types of securities trading, such as stocks, bonds, options, and futures.

Benefits of day orders

Day orders can be beneficial for traders who want to execute a trade at a specific price during a particular trading day but do not want to keep the order open and active if it is not filled by the end of the day. This can make it an effective tool to prevent unwanted exposure in the market.

Limitations of day orders

Day orders are only valid for the current trading day. This means it will expire if the order fails to be filled before the market closes. The trader will then need to place a new order on the following trading day if they wish to trade the market. This can result in missed opportunities. It can also result in additional trading costs, as the trader may need to place multiple orders to execute one trade.

Trading the stock market with a day order: an example

A trader wants to buy 50 shares of a stock at a maximum price of $100 per share. They place a day order with their broker to buy the stock at a limit price of $100 per share. If during the day, the market price of the stock reaches $100, the day order will be filled, and the trader will purchase the shares at the price. If the market price does not reach $100, the day order expires at the end of the trading day. The trader must place another order if they wish to make the same trade the following day.
