GTT (Good till Triggered) is a type of order that lets you Buy or Sell stocks at a Limit price. A GTT order is similar to a Limit order. The main difference is the validity of the order. A Limit order is typically valid for 1 day whereas a GTT order is valid for 1 year. GTT order is provided by many Full service & Discount brokers.
GTT denotes "Good till Triggered" which is a type of Buying option. GTT is a future included by some brokers under which you can buy and sell any security at your desired price. GTT is similar to a Limit order but which a longer validity. A limit order can be placed for either buying or selling a security. This is valid for 1 trading day or up to 3:30 pm. On the other hand, a GTT order doesn’t get cancelled after 1 trading day, instead, it remains active until the order is executed.
The maximum limit of a GTT order is 1 year, unlike other orders which are valid only for 1 day. GTT orders are a good option for buying or selling stocks at a specific price. For example, the current price of SBI is Rs 400 but I want to purchase it for Rs 380. A limit order at Rs 380 would not be sufficient as it will get cancelled at the end of each trading day. I will have to place a limit order every day to get the security at my desired price. To solve this problem GTT comes to the rescue.
