What is a stop order?


stop order (sometimes also known as a stop-loss order) is an order to buy or sell once the market reaches a certain price. Once a trade is made at below or above the stop price, the stop order is converted into a market order and executed at market price. Stop orders are normally used to ensure that a sale will not be made below, or a buy made above a specific price, limiting the amount lost - hence the term "stop-loss".
