public class LimitOrder
extends Order
implements Comparable<LimitOrder>
DTO representing a limit order

A limit order lets you set a minimum or maximum price before your trade will be treated by the exchange as a MarketOrder. There is no guarantee that your conditions will be met on the exchange, so your order may not be executed. However, until you become very experienced, almost all orders should be limit orders to protect yourself.
