Market orders

A wide range of factors, including economic and political, can impact instantly on a currency.

Delma Exchange offers different types and combinations of Market Orders.

Plan ahead. React to sudden fluctuations in values by placing instructions in advance and committing to buy or sell when a currency pair hits a certain rate.

The rate and time period for exchange is agreed up-front and the transaction is automatically actioned, as-and-when the agreed value is reached - so that your desired rate can be achieved whenever possible.

Benefits of a market order include:

  • Limit Orders
    These are used to achieve a better rate of exchange and maximise the return on your foreign exchange transactions, aimed to take advantage of spikes in rates.
  • Stop Loss Orders
    These are designed to protect you against negative rate fluctuations that could detract from your costed levels or targeted hedging levels.

Features of orders:

  • Good til Cancelled (GTC)
    These give you the ability to cancel an order at any time, so long as the agreed rate has not been reached.
  • One Cancels Other (OCO)
    This regulates Limit Orders and Stop Loss Orders when both are live on your account. If a Limit Order rate is reached for example, a corresponding Stop Loss Order will automatically be cancelled out.


“We use market orders to target an optimum rate and take advantage of volatility, including on Fridays, to significantly impact our bottom line.” Nezar Al Ali, Managing Director Medicom Distribution FZ
