A market-with-protection order is a trading order which is made up of a primary market order and a secondary limit order.
If the instruments in question cannot be purchased or sold in full via the market order, the remaining portion is bought or sold using a limit order with a limit that matches or deviates only slightly from the market price at which the market order was executed.
This type of order is primarily used for futures and options trading.
