What is a STOP Order?

A sell Stop Order is a special terms order that restricts your sell order to only be traded if the stock price drops down to a limit you specify. If you’re placing a buy order as a Stop Order, you would place the limit price above the current price so that you only buy once the stock rises to a certain price. Ensure you select “Special Terms” on your order.
