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.
