What Is A Stop-Loss?
A stop-loss is an order to sell a security at a specified amount to manage loss.
When a trader wants to limit potential loss on a trade, a stop-loss order is placed to exit a position automatically at a specified price, defined by the trader. Stop-loss orders are designed to eliminate human emotions from trading. With a stop-loss order in place, the desire to hold on to losses is diminished.
