A stop-loss order can be used as an extra risk-reduction measure. A stop-loss order’s proposed price, however, is never guaranteed, due to the fact that the stop-loss order’s price simply acts as a “trigger point”. Your stop-loss order will be regarded as a market order if the price of the traded financial instrument hits the trigger price. A stop-loss order might therefore be carried out at a poorer price as a result. All “stop” orders placed on any of our platforms are subject to this.
