Why is the GTT not triggered even though the GTT conditions are met?

A GTT is triggered when a stock price hits or crosses the trigger price based on the ticks recorded or displayed live on the system. There are hundreds of transactions per second on the exchange, and each transaction is represented by a tick. If the tick is not captured by the trading platform, the GTT may not trigger and can remain pending until the stock price reaches the trigger price again.

Example Scenario

  • Assume the price of XYZ Ltd is ₹102, and the GTT trigger was placed at ₹100.
  • The stock momentarily reached the trigger price of ₹100, and the tick wasn't recorded in the system. The GTT may not trigger.
