Definition of 'Target'
Targets are often entered into a trading system and by implication into the exchange's computers by using a limit order. Limit Orders are placed in a queue and are executed on a first come first served basis. For this reason, the earlier that a Target is placed, the further forward in the queue it will be and the more likely that it will be executed if the market trades at that price.
