Allow partial filling of Limit Orders

With limit orders available, it would also be great to allow portions of limit orders to be filled if there isn’t enough volume for the full limit order.

There shouldn’t be any added complexity regarding commissions per trade as e.g. 10% of zero is still zero :). I would expect the same for USD FX fees as these are just a % of the filled transaction.

Could this be looked at again, particularly with more low liquidity stocks and increasing order sizes?

Say I want ÂŁ1000 of a low liquidity stock and there are ÂŁ300 on offer at my limit price, I could accept it and buy the remaining shares later.

This would drastically cut down on order rejections.
