How to Place an Iceberg Order

Iceberg orders are handled by filling in the “Disclosed Quantity” field of a normal ticket. The value must be a multiple of the lot size and no less than 10% of the total quantity of the Order (prerequisites). Slices are successively entered in the Order book, and disclosed to the market by specified tranches.
Example Quantity: 1,000 Disclosed Quantity: 100 (1,000*.10).
Open an Order Ticket, fill-out the required fields and click on the ‘Advanced Order Details’ section to expand it.

Enter a proper value in the Disclosed Quantity field and then click on [PREVIEW ORDER].
If the Disclosed Quantity value you entered failed to meet the prerequisites as detailed above, then the order will immediately be rejected after placing it. In the order blotter page, you may see the reason for rejection as follows.


*Iceberg order does not meet the minimum quantity

If there is a posted Selling Order that has at least the Quantity you put in the “Disclosed Quantity”, then the order will be matched. Otherwise, the order will be terminated. Below is an example of an Iceberg order with matched Disclosed quantity.
