Advanced Order Types

● Stop Limit Order

● Market if Touched Order

● Limit if Touched Order

● Trailing Stop Order

● trailing stop limit order

Order Description

Advanced Orders allow users to set up specific strategies that allow the system to trigger basic orders under certain conditions. Usually, an Advanced Order is not immediately submitted to the exchange but will be placed in Futu's internal order queue when the condition is unmet.

Please note that in order to give users more flexibility in setting up advanced orders, the system does not immediately freeze the buying power or positions when a user places an advanced order. Only after the condition is triggered, the corresponding buying power or positions will be frozen. If there is not enough buying power or positions in the account at the time of the trigger, the order may be canceled.

The specific markets and trading directions supported by the advanced orders are shown in the following table.
