Market maker

Market order execution in two or more steps, with all partial orders filled at the same price.

A Market-to-Limit (MTL) order can first be filled only partially at the current best market price. However, the remainder of the order can only be executed to a price equal to the price at which the filled portion of the order was executed.

Our glossary explains important financial terms and should not leave any questions unanswered. However, if you are missing a definition, please write to us at We will then include the term if possible.
