An at the opening order is a way for an investor to secure a position at the opening of a trading session. A trader can place a market at the opening order or a limit at the opening order. A market at the opening order is an order to buy or sell a specific number of shares at the best price available at the opening of the market session, regardless of what that price might be. A limit at the opening order specifies the price that the investor will accept. If the specified price is not available, then the limit at the opening order is cancelled.
