A BUY LIMIT order is a pending order that you place below the market price.  Orders like that are placed because it is thought that a price once reaches a certain level will bounce back and raise.  The BUY STOP order on the other hand is meant for the case where a price can break a resistance and continue climbing up.

There are the equivalents to SELL orders.

Re: Buy Limit / Stop Limit

Furthermore, always keep into account that LIMIT orders does not have slippage, while STOP ORDERS always have some slippage.
This difference can make "the difference" in scalping strategies that works very nice in backtest an/or Demo accounts... but if used in real accounts will be killed by slippage.

Thanked for the post: choakures

Re: Buy Limit / Stop Limit

Whether LIMIT orders get slippage or not depends on your broker. For my broker, LIMIT orders may still get slippage, their reason is that when LIMIT orders are being triggered, they changed into MARKET orders to be executed and hence the final price you get may be different from your LIMIT price. Do note however that slippage may be positive or negative, so you may get better or worse pricing ....
