Good This Week
What is a Good This Week?
Good this week is a type of trade order that is automatically canceled if it is not filled by the end of the week in which the client makes the order.
How Does a Good This Week Work?
For example, let's assume an investor wants to sell 100 shares of Company XYZ at $25 per share or better. She places a "good this week" order with her broker on Wednesday. The broker has the rest of the week to sell the shares at $25 per share or higher. If he cannot do so, the order expires at the end of the day on Friday.
Why Does a Good This Week Matter?
A good this week order is a type of limit order. Limit orders in general can limit losses and lock in profits by giving investors some sort of a specified purchase or sale price. This makes them very useful in low volume or high volatility markets.
