GTT (Good Till Triggered) Orders for BUY: GTT Order for BUY is used to take the delivery of a Stock based on Trigger Price and Limit Price. Normally, we use GTT so that we don't spend too much time monitoring the prices of Stocks. Buy Orders are automatically placed to Exchange (NSE or BSE) based on our pre-defined price once it is triggered.

Trigger Price - Trigger Price is the price (once hit) where Broker sends the Buy Order to the Exchange.

Limit Price - Limit Price is your actual purchase price where you instruct your broker not to go higher than this price for Buying. So Exchange will settle the Buying at this Price if a Seller is found. And the buyer will get the Delivery on (T+2) day on this buying price.

Remember, GTT Orders remain valid for a Year.

TIP 1: Normally you place GTT Buy Order so that you can get the Stock at a cheaper price and at the same time you don't need to keep on tracking the prices. This approach is useful when you are an Investor having a horizon of minimum 1 to 2 years and the selected Stock is a very good fundamental Stock. So you fill the Trigger and Limit Price much lower than the Current Market Price,

TIP 2: If you a Swing or Positional Trader then you would like to buy the Stock only if it is moving above 30DMA or 200DMA prices for the Value Buy. Here, your target is around 5% to 8% and the holding period is between 2 to 20 days. In such cases, you may fill Trigger Price & Limit Price higher than the Current Market Price to make sure the price is above the mentioned DMAs for a proper upswing.
