What is a limit order?

A limit order allows you as an investor to set the price at which a share will be bought. The share will be bought when the "BUY AT" price is equal to or below the one you have specified.


Share A is now trading at R15.00 but you expect that the price might drop to R12.50 at which point you would be prepared to buy the share.

You would set R12.50 as your limit order and the transaction would only go off once the share reaches that price.
