What is a Stop Loss order?
A Stop-Loss order may serve as an additional risk minimization strategy. You can apply for a stop-loss order by choosing the price that matches the amount of money you are willing to risk. You can set it upon the opening of a trade or you can modify the trade at any given point. A stop-loss must be placed below the current market price on Buy positions, and above the current market price on Sell positions.
