What is Market On Close (MOC)?
Market on close (MOC) is a market order that is executed at the latest possible time during a trading session.

For example, if the market closes at 4:00 p.m. and a trader has an MOC that will take five minutes to fully execute, the trader will likely choose to execute it at 3:54 or 3:55 p.m.
