Good Till Triggered, often known as GTT, is a feature that enables you to specify terms like pricing and validity. Your order will stay in effect when it is submitted until the trade is carried out. This indicates that you won't need to place the same order daily until your criteria are fulfilled.
Without having to manually enter the same information every day, GTT enables traders and investors to enter and exit their trades in accordance with their defined specifications.

Main Features of GTT

  • A limit order will be executed on the exchange in accordance with the limit price and predetermined conditions that you specify if your trigger price is reached at a future date using the GTT feature.
  • Only CNC type orders in the Equity Cash segment on the NSE and BSE, as well as NRML type orders in the Equity Derivatives segment on the NSE, are eligible for usage with GTT.
  • A GTT is a trigger that places a limit order (at the limit price you choose) once the trigger price you chose is reached or crossed.
  • All such orders will be cancelled at the conclusion of that trading day session if the trigger price is violated on a given day but the chosen limit price is not precisely met on that same day.
  • The GTT trigger can only be used once; therefore, if an order is placed but not performed for whatever reason, a new GTT order must be placed.
  • An order would be placed at the chosen limit price if the Last Traded Price (LTP) of a share spikes higher than the trigger price chosen or if the LTP opens at a gap up or gap down exceeding the trigger price.

Working of GTT

For example, if you want to buy a share of a company named XYZ LTD if the price is below ₹100, then you can set this condition by using the GTT option.

The order will remain active until the share price falls below ₹100 and the share is bought in your name.

And vice-versa for selling of any shares.

Single Trigger feature of GTT

A single trigger price entered by You that could be used to start a stop loss order or a target order (if the LTP chosen is greater than the current market price) or  (if LTP selected is lower than the current market price)

OCO(One Cancels Other ) feature of GTT

One Cancels Other, or "OCO": This feature type is applicable to the stocks that you hold in your Demat account. You can enter two trigger prices, one of which would be above the current market price and act as a target price, and the other of which would be below the current market price and act as a stop loss price.

Both Single and OCO triggers will be activated in accordance with the Trigger Price & Trigger Conditions that You have chosen.
