Reduce-Only Orders

Modified on Fri, 31 May at 11:23 AM

Reduce-only orders enable traders to execute buy or sell orders that solely reduce an existing position, rather than opening a new position in the opposite direction that could exceed the current asset value. This allows for trading without the risk of overexposing existing positions. Orders labeled as "reduce-only" will be automatically canceled if they would potentially increase the position size in the opposite direction. While the reduce-only designation can be applied to any order type, it is particularly valuable when used in conjunction with stop orders. For information on further order types, visit Delta Order Types.
