Reserve Order

A reserve order, also referred to as an “iceberg order” is a type of order used in stock trading. After a reserve order is placed with a broker, the order is broken down into many equally-sized smaller orders. Each order only becomes visible to the public when the previous order has been fulfilled.

This order automates the process of making multiple individual orders in succession in order to prevent the market fluctuations which may occur if a single, large order were executed.
