What is stop loss order and how to place it?
It is used as a tool to minimise losses on a position. You may
use this type of order when, for example, you have bought a particular stock at
Rs 1000. You can afford losses only up to Rs.950. Instead of seeing market
continuously and check price you can limit such a loss by placing a Stop Loss
order. Place order @ Rs. 950 as your Trigger Price and Rs. 945 as the Limit
Price. The order of Rs. 945 gets a trigger when price falls to Rs. 950.
Limit Price: Limit price is the price at which shares are bought
Trigger Price: It is the price at which the exchange servers
will make you Buy/Sell order active for execution. After the stop loss is
triggered, Limit Price is the price at which your shares will be bought or
For a Stop Loss Order, you need to change the order type from RL
(Regular) to SL (Stop Loss) on the order entry screen. You will also have to
mention Trigger Price & Limit Price.
For a ‘Buy’ Stop Loss order, the Trigger Price will be
lower than the Limit Price.
For a ‘Sell’ Stop Loss order, the Trigger Price will be higher
than the Limit Price
Note: You can place the order in stop loss as many times you want
and modify if required. However, if the stop loss is triggered and partially
executed, then you will not be able to modify the same.
