What is a market on open order (MOO)?

A market-on-open (MOO) order combines a market order with the OPG time in force to create an order that is automatically submitted at the market’s open and fills at the market price.

Notes for MOO Orders

  • ToledoTrade may simulate market orders on exchanges.
  • Nasdaq MOO (and LOO) orders must be submitted prior to 09:28 ET.
  • Options Orders: MOO orders for options must be directed to an exchange. The OPG time in force for directed options orders will only be available when you select a routing destination that supports this order type, for example CBOE, CBOE2 or MIAX.
  • Option functionality for MOO orders may not be available in the PaperTrader.
