Daily trading limit.
The daily trading limit is the most that the price of a futures contract can rise or fall in a single session before trading in that contract is stopped for the day.
Trading limits are designed to protect investors from wild price fluctuations and the potential for major losses. They're comparable to the circuit breakers established by stock exchanges to suspend trading when prices fall by a specific percentage.
