Limit-If-Touched Order

A limit-if-touched (LIT) order is a trading order type which allows an investor to specify a limit higher than the going market rate at which they want their broker to sell specific securities (sell LIT).

Investors can also use a limit-if-touched order to specify a price lower than the going market rate at which they want their broker to purchase specific shares (buy LIT). Only when market rates reach the predefined limit does the broker fulfill the order.
