Additional conditions ‘fill or kill’ or ‘fill and kill’ for orders

The additional conditions ‘fill or kill’ or ‘fill and kill’ can only be used for orders made on the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian markets. Orders with additional conditions can only be given during the opening hours of the stock exchange and for the same day.

A transaction order with the ‘fill or kill’ condition is filled only if it is possible to fill the order immediately in full and for the price indicated in the order. Otherwise the order is cancelled.

  • For example, you would like to buy 1000 shares of company ABC. Your order is filled if at least 1000 shares of this company are for sale at the price indicated in the order or at a lower price at the time when the order is sent to the market. Your order is cancelled in full if the number of shares for sale at the time is smaller and their price is higher than noted in your order (e.g. only 500 shares are available at the price level requested by you).

Scheme of a ‘fill or kill’ transaction

Unlike transactions with the additional condition described above, a transaction with the additional condition ‘fill and kill’ may also be filled in part. A ‘fill and kill’ transaction order is filled to the extent of the quantity that can be immediately filled at the requested price. The remainder of the order is cancelled.

  • In light of the example given above, it means that if only 500 shares of company ABC are being sold at the price level indicated in the order at the time the order reaches the market, the order is filled in respect of these 500 shares. The remainder of the transaction order is cancelled.
