There are 3 main types of orders:
When you choose this type, the order will be placed right into the exchange's order book. If this order is placed correctly then the execution of it will be fully completed at the specified price. This type of order is better if you trade on pairs with low liquidity and want to avoid big spreads. Thus, this type of order is perfect for big-sized orders.
If you choose the Market Order type, you will need to choose the price type:
Bid - the price should reach the best BUY price (usually, it's green and on the bottom of the order book).
Ask - the price should reach the best SELL price (usually, it's red and on the top of the order book).
Last - the Take profit order will be executed if the conditional will be traded.

If you choose the Market Order type to open the trade, the initial order (to start the trade) will be executed at the market price instantly, so you are not able to change the price. But if the Market Order is chosen for Take Profit, then this order will be executed at the market price right after the specified price level is reached. Here you can enter the price where the Market Order will be executed.
These are interesting types of orders, as you need to set the conditional price first, which will trigger the order to be placed or executed. So the order is not placed beforehand and is not triggered immediately after you create a SmartTrade. Thus, the funds are not locked in the orders and are free to use. This means that you will have to carefully and thoroughly track your balance!
For example, using Conditional orders to buy coins. You can place as many orders as you want and your funds will not be blocked there. You can trade in semi-automated mode, setting up Take Profit and Stop Losses to exit the trades.
You can also manually use QFL strategy in SmartTrades.
There are two types of this order.
1. Conditional Limit Order:
The main idea of this type is to place a limit order (described above) only if the price reaches a specified price level. Before this level is reached, the limit order is not placed
So there are two prices - Trigger price and Order price. You need to specify a trigger price when the order should be placed. Order price is where the Limit order will be placed when the condition is met.
2. Conditional Market Order
This works the same way as the Conditional Limit order, but with only one difference - it executes the order at the market rate as soon as the price reaches the condition (trigger) level. Also, it behaves exactly the same as Market Order when you use it to start the SmartTrade.
This type of order is perfect if you use Trailing buy or Trailing Stop Loss features.
Here you can choose the price type to consider - ASK, BID or LAST.
