What is a stop-loss?
Updated over a week ago

A stop loss is an order type that allows a customer to enter a share value at which to sell their investment, lower than the current share price.

If the share price decreases and hits the share value entered, the stop loss will attempt to execute in order to limit a customers loss on an investment.


A stop loss doesn't guarantee a share price, and you may find that it executes above or below the desired share value.
