Trading 101 — Order Types: Fill or Kill (FOK)
Fill or Kill (FOK) is a specific “Time in Force” order type that involves either the full instant execution of a trade or its cancellation. It is usually used when traders try to fill large orders on the spot and at a specific price and are not interested in partial fills (= everything or nothing, right away).
Pros: Useful for large volume orders fulfillment (Institutions and Funds). Can trigger hidden orders from opposite side.
Cons: Risks of no execution for high volumes in low liquidity markets. Difficulty to control buy/sell price efficiently.
FOK orders pay taker fees.
