Iceberg Order

Iceberg orders are large single orders that have been divided into smaller limit orders, usually through the use of an automated program, for the purpose of hiding the actual order quantity. The term iceberg comes from the fact that the visible lots are just the tip of the iceberg given the greater number of limit orders ready to be placed. They are also sometimes referred to as reserve orders.
