Setting a Stop-Loss to Avoid Excessive Losses

What is Stop-Loss

If you want to limit your potential losses in case the price moves in an unfavorable direction, you should place a Stop-Loss order. A Stop-Loss is an instruction for a broker to close a position when the price reaches a certain level. It functions as a protective order that is attached to a position.

Why is Stop-Loss Important

Stop-Loss is an optional order. Of course, you can monitor your positions on your own and can close or modify them manually whenever you want. However, this approach has several disadvantages: It is difficult for you to be in front of a computer all the time, and there can be internet connection losses. Stop-Loss order is designed to mitigate these risks. When you set a Stop-Loss order, it is stored and executed on the broker's server.

How to Set a Stop-Loss Order

There are several ways to set a Stop-Loss order.

To place a Stop-Loss for an existing market position, click on a particular position in the “Positions” tab and set the “Stop-Loss price”.When opening a new position, simply specify the Stop-Loss price in the New Order tab.

A Stop-Loss can also be set for pending orders. When a pending order is filled, an opened position will inherit a Stop-Loss price specified in the pending order. 

Setting a Take-Profit to Lock In a Desired Profit

What is Take-Profit

If you want to lock in your profits in case the price moves in a favorable direction, you should place a Take-Profit order. A Take-Profit is an instruction for a broker to close a position when the price reaches a certain level. Take-Profit functions as an additional order attached to a position or a pending order.

Why is Take-Profit Important

Similar to Stop-Loss, a Take-Profit order is optional. You can monitor the profitability of your positions on your own and can close them manually. However, when a Take-Profit order is set, it is stored and executed on the broker's server automatically.

How to Set a Take-Profit Order

To place a Take-Profit order for an existing market position, click on a particular position in the “Positions” tab and set the “Take-Profit price”.

When opening a new position, simply specify the Take-Profit price in the New Order tab. A Take-Profit can also be set for pending orders. When a pending order is filled, an opened position will inherit a Take-Profit price specified in the pending order.
