Explanation:
I am not certain, but Schaefer's Business Dictionary has Geld-Brief-Schlusskurs, which it translates as "bid-ask close". Hard to say if this fits your context (sounds pretty auction-like, however). Following this, maybe you could render this Geld-Brief-Limit as bid-ask limit. Good luck!

ask limit/offer limit


Explanation:
See the pertinent entries from Schäfer, Hyperbook Wirtschaftsenglisch, below:

Brief m
(com) letter
(Bö) ask
– offer
– offer price
Geld n
(Fin) money (ie, notes and coin)
(com) money
– (infml) cash (money in any form)
– (sl) bread
(Bö) bid
– buyers
– buyers over

Since this pertains to a commodities exchange, "ask", "bid"', and offer would probably be your best choices. HTH!
