End Of Day Order

AAA

DEFINITION of 'End Of Day Order'

A buy or sell order that specifies a price for the security, and keeps the transaction open until the end of the trading day. If a transaction is not made as the desired price is not met by the close of trading, the end of day order will be canceled.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'End Of Day Order'

Investors who want to keep an order open until it is met can utilize a good 'til canceled (GTC) order. Unlike an end of day order, a GTC order won't close until it is filled. This requires the investor to pay more attention, since price or exchange rate volatility may make leaving the order open a greater risk.
