How long will my limit, sell-stop, or stop-limit sell order remain in effect?

You can choose to have these orders remain open for the following durations:

  • Day. Your order remains open through the end of the trading day, and then will expire if it does not execute during the trading day. If you place a stop or limit order after market close, the order will carry over to the next trading day.
  • Good ‘Til Canceled. Your order remains open until your order fills completely, you cancel the order, or 60 calendar days have passed and the order expires.
