1.Users can not place trigger orders when that types of contracts are in delivery, settlement or suspension status, which means trigger order function is only available for trading-status contracts.
2.There is order limit for trigger orders. Users cannot place trigger orders for one type of contract when surpassing order limit of that type of contract.

But if the pre-set order price is not within the price limit (i.e. users set a buy price that is higher than the highest buy price or a sell price that is lower than the lowest sell price), then, the trigger order will fail.
4. When the close trigger orders get executed, the system will place the orders in order book, If the amount of orders placed go below the orders available to close in the users’ account, the actual order quantity will follow the available amount in their account finally. Please note that if the pre-set order price is not within the price limit (i.e. users set a ask price that is higher than the highest ask price or a bid price that is lower than the lowest price due to volatile market, the trigger order designation might fail to be triggered or fail to be fulfilled successfully even after getting triggered.

Limit Order is a kind of order type that will only be filled at the optimal price when the closing order price is lower than market price or the opening order price is higher than market price. Please note that it depends entirely on the market conditions at the time whether the order can be successfully filled or not.
