Market-If-Touched Order

A market-if-touched (MIT) order is an order placed to a broker which specifies that a security must be bought or sold at market rates if and when its price reaches a certain limit.

For example, an investor may use a market-if-touched order to have their broker buy a specific stock if its price falls below a certain level.
