Can I use limit orders like a market order?

You can use Limit orders like a market order by placing:

1. A buy order with limit price much higher than the last traded price (LTP) or 
2. A sell order with limit price much lesser than LTP. 

In such cases, the limit order will automatically execute like a market order since you're instructing to fill your order at any price up to your specified limit. The good bit here is that the limit price you enter will act as a protection and ensure that your order won’t get executed beyond this price.
