Discretionary order
Explanation:
A stock talk site called edu bourse speaks of ordre soignant and translates it as a "looking after" order. The explanation they give is: a "looking after" order is an order which allows a private individual or institution to leave with an operator the choice of the best moment for the execution of an order. The site is www.edubourse.com.
Maybe this explanation will lead a stock exchange expert translation to the right English term. "looking after" order is fishy in my eyes (a Google invention).
The closest I know about is discretionary order (at the discretion of the broker).
