Partial execution can be performed at different prices.
6.16. Order Execution Types
6.16.1.Market orders are the buy or sell orders at the current available market price.

6.16.2. Pending orders:
- Limit order: this is an order to buy or sell when the market reaches a certain price. As soon as the market reaches a certain price, the order is launched and executed at the specified price or better. If the “limit order” cannot be applied, it remains in the system until a later date under the conditions described in “Good Till Cancel”. Limit orders can be placed as close to the current market price as possible, without restrictions.
- Take Profit: This is an order used to protect profits. Once the market reaches a price “Take Profit”, the order is triggered and is considered as a limit order. If Take Profit does not work, it remains in the system until a later date. Take Profit can be placed as close to the current market price as possible, without any restrictions.
- Modification / cancellation of orders: The client can change / cancel a pending order.
- Stop order: This is a buy or sell order when the market reaches the specified price. As soon as the market reaches a certain price, the “Stop Order” is triggered and executed as a market order. If the “Stop Order” cannot be applied, this means that the order remains in the system under the conditions described in the “GTC” section. “Stop orders” can be placed as close as possible to the current market price, without restrictions.
- Stop loss: this is an order used to minimize losses. As soon as the market reaches the specified price, the order is triggered and executed as a market order.

Stop loss can be placed as close as possible to the current market price, without any restrictions.
- GTC (Good Till Cancel): this is a pending order that is valid until the Client cancels it.
- GTD (Good Till Day): this is a pending order that is valid until the set date (date of expiration of the order).

6.17.3. Bid Ask spread: Two prices are given for any financial instrument of the Company: a higher price (Ask) at which the Client can buy (enter a long position) a financial instrument, and a lower price (Bid) at which the Client can sell (open a short position) a financial instrument. The difference between the higher and lower prices of a given financial instrument is called a spread.
6.17.4. Pending orders: such orders as Buy Limit, Buy Stop и Stop Loss / Take Profit are executed at Ask for open short position. Orders such as Sell Limit, Sell Stop и Stop Loss / Take Profit orders for open long position are executed at Bid.
6.17.5. The Company’s price for the financial instrument is calculated based on the prices of the corresponding financial instrument, which the Company receives from its liquidity providers. The Company updates its prices as often as limited by technical capacity. The Company does not quote prices in the period of its non-operating hours (see p. "Execution Methods"), therefore, no orders can be placed by the Client during this time.
6.17.6. All trading operations are transferred directly to liquidity providers through an electronic execution system in the trading platform. This system automatically requests a quote from liquidity providers. In combination with the price, the Company quotes the available liquidity (or “market depth”) received from liquidity providers. The Company’s software will automatically combine all available liquidity at the best prices and form a volume-weighted average price (VWAP).
6.17.7. Expenses: to open a position on any financial instrument, the Client is obliged to pay a commission or other fees, if applicable; these amounts are presented in the contract specification and are available on the Company's official site.
