What limit up means and what is happening now ….

Limit up means the contract is not allowed to move up more than 5% in overnight 
  • that is, there can be no trades higher until 9:30 am NY time
  • trade below the upper limit is permitted (this is what is now happening, ie the price has fallen back a little) 
  • that is price can trade down, just not any further up

  • 5% up-and-down limits
  • effective 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 am CT, Sundays through Fridays
