Does tastytrade have an order or position limit?
Just like people, orders and portfolios come in all sizes. It’s okay if you’re a “Johnny One-Lot,” but if you subscribe to the notion that “bigger is better” then there are some things you’ll need to know before sending that order. Additionally, when scaling into a position, please keep in mind of positions limits as well. Listed below are the order limits and position limits for all the products we trade at tastytrade.
Order and Position Limits
|Stocks||2,500 shares||50,000 shares|
|Options (per option)||250 contracts*||500 contracts*|
|Futures (per root)||250 contracts||500 contracts|
|Options on futures||250 contracts*||500 contracts*|
*Option limits are applied per leg of a strategy. For example, you are able to place an order for 250 vertical option spreads even though it consists of 500 contracts (+250 long options contracts + -250 short options contracts) because each leg is within the limit.
