Upstox today announced the addition of the Good Till Triggered option – also known as GTT – on its platform, giving traders and investors another way to execute their trades according to their parameters.

GTT allows traders and investors to enter and exit their trades according to their set parameters, without worrying about re-entering those details manually every day.

“With the GTT feature, we hope to provide traders with more convenience, while also encouraging them to maintain a disciplined trading mindset and be aware of their risk appetite. More importantly, traders will no longer have to worry about constantly verifying the status of a single order,” said Shrini Vishwanath, co-founder, Upstox.

At the moment, the GTT feature on Upstox is available on the Android app – we were able to verify this and also set parameters. And even though the market is closed today, the GTT feature means that whenever the market re-opens, our trade will be executed when it meets the conditions we set.

Upstox says the GTT feature will roll out to iOS soon. It is not available on the web platform, yet.

It is worth noting that the GTT option has been available for a while now on other platforms like Zerodha and Angel One.

What is GTT?



GTT, short for Good Till Triggered, is a feature that lets you set certain conditions like price and validity. Once your order is placed, it will remain active until the trade is executed. This means you won’t have to repeat the order every day until your conditions are met.

For instance, if I want to buy a share of a company named ABC if its price falls below ₹100, I can set this condition by using the GTT option.

The order will remain active until the share price falls below ₹100 and the share is bought in my name.

Note that I can set conditions like if the price goes above a certain level, or I can also choose to execute the trade at market price.

Here’s the GTT order validity explained:

  • Delivery orders – 365 days.

  • Futures and options – until the expiry of those futures and options.
