When you schedule an order, you have to consider the closing price. However, you have the flexibility of choosing a price which is 5% more or less than the closing price. 

For example, if the price of a stock you are buying is Rs. 100 at the end of the day, you have the option of choosing a price in the range of Rs. 95 and 105.

Using the previous example, if it is a buy order and is placed at +/-5% and the share price opens at Rs. 105 on the next trading day, your order is executed at Rs. 105.
