A GTT is a feature of the share market which allows you to trade on the specific or the amount you created to buy that particular stock.

For example- If you want to buy a share of rupee 200 but right now the price of that share is rupee205 then you can set a GTT order of rupee 200, which means in short that when the price of that share will come down to rupee 200 it will buy that share automatically.

With this feature of GTT currently talking in UPSTOX makes the trading way easier, also you should make sure that this feature of GTT is only available in the new and updated version of UPSTOX.

With the help of GTT, all you need to do is – define your buy or sell price with your decided profit target and the maximum loss or the stop loss you can handle and just sit back and relax. The rest of the work will be compiled by the UPSTOX trading app. As soon as each relevant price that you set gets triggered, UPSTOX will place that order and notify you.

Come on let me notify you why you should create a GTT order…

Why place a gtt order?

Saves your Time
Once you place a GTT order, you are not required to search the markets back and forth every second. Simply sit back and relax!

Easy to Handle and operate:
GTT doesn’t involve any complex formulas or has something rocket science.
You just need to decide whether you want to place a buy/sell order above, below or at the current market price and then just Add a Stop Loss and a Target and place your orders with just a single click.

Management of the trades is much better:
Basically, when you buy a stock you cannot place a sell order with it, but with the help of the GTT Order you can create the sell order with proper conditions when they are at the time of buying. So, when the proper conditions meet like STOP LOSS and TARGET ORDER(will be explained) the share will be sold out.

Now just see some of the basic terms:
Stop Loss: An order at a price below which you don’t want to make further losses

The next one is a Target: An order at a price at which you’d like to exit to make profits.

How to create a GTT order

GTT orders are way too simple as compared to any other live share market. You just need a quick overview or a trust towards that particular company to which you need to buy the stocks.

Once stock is placed under GTT you need nothing to do or search for the live market beneath.

DELIVERY- you can hold the stock for about365 days without any failure, whenever you think you can sell the stock once buoyed.

INTRADAY- within buying the stock with INTRADAY feature you will get a margin but you won’t be able to keep that stock for too long you would have to sell that stock within the market day that too the same market day.

Next comes the place order feature with 3 different criteria

1. The first criteria is-IF PRICE IS BELOW—–this feature allows you to set the price with the price low as compared to the market price or in simple words you can say that if the price of a particular share is rupee 100 but you need to buy that share when the price moves down to rupee95 then you can select this option and then when your desired condition will be fulfilled the stock will the purchased.

3. Third criteria come as IMMEDIATELY—– under this criterion you will buy the stock with the price as that of the market currently.
