All or None Order (AON)
Back to Finance Glossary | Previous PageAn all or none order (AON) refers to a limited price order that is to be executed in its entirety or not at all (no partial transaction) and tests the strength of the counterparty. Unlike an FOK order, an AON order is not to be treated as cancelled if not executed as soon as it is represented in the trading crowd, but instead remains alive until executed or cancelled.
Making "all or none" bids or offers in stocks is prohibited, and making "all or none" bids or offers in bonds is subject to the restrictions of Rule 61. AON orders are not shown on the specialist's book because they cannot be traded in pieces.
