Limit

1. The maximum amount of price change a futures contract is allowed to undergo on a given trading day. Limits are mandated by the exchanges on which futures contracts trade, and exist in order to reduce volatility in the market. It is also called a trading limit.

2. The maximum number of transactions in commodities that an individual may make on an exchange on a given trading day. Limits are mandated either by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission or by the exchanges on which commodity contracts trade. It is also called a trading limit.

3. See: Limit order.

To calculate LOD and LOQ, a 0.25 [micro]g/kg solution of mercury in nitric acid was used (the lowest point in the curve was diluted twenty times).
About 67.5% of the samples had concentrations > LOD and only 14.5% > LOQ (Figure 1).
The LOQs for wipe ADs, urinary ADs, and FBAL, respectively were: 0.06-3.61 ng/wipe, 22.9-46.2 ng/l, 643 ng/l (Table 1 and 2).
Limit of quantity (LOQ) and sensitivity of biosensor were 1.598 mM and 0.0008 mA/mM.
LOD and LOQ values remained close to these in GC/MS methods used by Fernandes and Ferreira [5], Casal et al.
LOD and LOQ. Limit of detection (LOD) was calculated based on the standard deviation of the response and the slope.
The LOQ for the four pesticide residues was in the range of 0.17 to 0.43 [micro]g x [g.sup.-1] in the caja-manga pulp using the SLE-LTP method with analysis by GC-FID.
In liver extracts, the LODs and LOQs are reported as picomoles/gram liver as follows: [C.sub.6]/[C.sub.8] PFPiA, LOD: 0.0010, LOQ: 0.0050; [C.sub.8]/[C.sub.8] PFPiA, LOD: 0.0010, LOQ: 0.004; [C.sub.6]PFPA, LOD: 0.015, LOQ: 0.050; [C.sub.8]PFPA, LOD: 0.022, LOQ: 0.072; PFHxA, LOD: 0.19, LOQ: 0.64; PFHpA, LOD: 0.16, LOQ: 0.55; PFOA, LOD: 0.034, LOQ: 0.116; PFNA, LOD: 0.0080, LOQ: 0.028.
The limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantitation (LOQ) for the 20 elements in maize flour were determined for each calibration curve by using the following equations: LOD = 3*SD/S, LOQ = 10*SD/S, where, SD is the standard deviation of a response, and S is the slope of the calibration curve (Shrivastava and Gupta, 2011).
Dedeksiyon limiti (LOD) ve kanditasyon limiti (LOQ) su esitlikle hesaplanmistir: LOD ve LOQ=KSSa/b, LOD icin K= 3 ve LOQ icin K=10 dur, SSa kesim noktasinin ve b ise egimin standart sapmasini gostermektedir.
