What is Stop-Limit order on Margin Trading?
Stop-Limit order allows traders to combine a limit order and a stop-loss order to mitigate risks by specifying the minimum amount of profit or the maximum loss they are willing to accept. Users can start by setting a stop price and a limit price. When the trigger price is reached, the system will automatically place the order even when you are logged out.
Trigger price: When the token reaches the trigger price, the order will be placed automatically at the Limit price with the pre-set amount.
Price: The price for buy/sell
Quantity: The buy/sell amount in the order
Note: If there's a large market fluctuation when users are trading in Auto mode, the available loan will be changed. This may lead to the failure of the stop-limit order.
The market price of EOS is now higher than 2.5 USDT. User A believes that 2.5 USDT price mark is an important support line. So User A thinks if the price of EOS falls below the price, he can apply for a loan to buy EOS. In this case, User A can leverage the stop-limit order and set the trigger prices and amount in advance. With this function, User A will have no need to actively monitor the market.
Note: If the token has experienced great volatility, the stop-limit order may fail to be executed.
