There are four types of order available on Binance Futures: limit order, market order, stop-limit order and stop-trailing order.
Please be noted that you are only allowed for one position per trading pair. To illustrate this, if you open a short position, anticipating that the price will go down in the longer timeframe, but in the meanwhile wanted to open a long to do a trade for a shorter timeframe. You are unable to open positions in both directions at the same time. Opening positions in both directions would result cancel one another out.

Limit Order

A stop-limit order is a conditional trade over a set timeframe with stop price and limit price features.

A trailing stop order allows traders to place a pre-set order at a specific percentage away from the market price when the market swings. It locks in profit by enabling a trade to remain open and continue to profit as long as the price is moving in the direction favorable to traders. The trailing stop does not move back in the other direction. When the price moves in the opposite direction by a specified percentage, the trailing stop will close/exit the trade at market price.
