This would be particularly helpful when placing limit orders on contracts that expire soon, like, "Will so-and-so announce by June 30th?" These contracts decay in price, and if I place a "yes" order and forget about it, it will be picked off. If I could place a time limit, I can quit worrying about it.
Thanks for the feedback on order types. The development team will certainly review this message and give it consideration. At this time, PredictIt does not automatically cancel any offers made by traders unless their offers reach a point where they exceed available funds. Except in this instance, all offers are good until cancelled by the user or until that market expires.
This is a very nice idea
great idea, especially critical given these markets all have a specific end dates. If you want to clear out orders before the release of specific information or announcement it is helpful to have this feature.
