Trigger order is a preset order, which users place ahead with limit price/market price and trigger price, once the latest price reaches the preset trigger price, the trigger order will be sent to market. With trigger order, users could set an order in advance to sell or buy contracts.
Trigger order is generally used for "Buy/Long to chase rising price" and "Sell/Short to chase falling price".
1. In Buy/Sell page, select ‘Trigger order’, input ‘trigger price’,‘order price’and ‘quantity’, and then select the leverage
a）Buy long to chase rising price
If users think the price will keep going up when BTC rises to 10000USDT, users can Buy/Long at price‘ 10010’( higher than market price). When the latest price reaches 10000, the order with limit price‘10010’ will be sent to market. The limit order follows the principle of buying low and selling high. Buy/Long with order price 10010 will be filled immediately when the latest price≤10010, because the latest price is more beneficial to users than the limit price 10010.
Or users can click the market price button, the order will be sent to the market at the best order price when the market price rises to 10000 USDT.
b）Sell/Short to chase falling price

When the latest price reaches 6000, the order with price‘5990’will be sent to market. The limit order follows the principle of buying low and selling high. Sell/Short with order price 5990 will be filled immediately when the latest price ≥5990, because the latest price is more beneficial to users than the limit price’5990’.
