The duration of the order allows the investor to set a bid or an ask in a desired time frame. For example, let's say it is currently Tuesday and news that will affect a company's stock will be released the coming Monday. If an investor wishes to buy or sell the stock anytime before the news is released, he or she may place a GTW order to buy or sell these shares before the news arrives.The order will be good until the end of Friday, but will become invalid for Monday's news release.
