A Stop-Limit order is a conditional trade feature used to buy and sell crypto which helps prevent any losses over a chosen price. Setting a stop and limit price is a secure way to automate buy or sell orders without constantly needing to watch the market.
There are 3 components to the stop-limit feature:
Quantity: Amount (fiat) or quantity (crypto) you would like to buy/sell at a limit price.
Stop Price: When the last traded price reaches a given stop price, your stop order (buy/sell) will be triggered at that specified price.
Limit Price: The Price at which the stop-limit order (buy/sell) is placed in the order book.
A Buy stop-limit order is triggered when the last traded price reaches or exceeds the stop price of the order. For a Buy stop limit order, the limit price must be greater than or equal to the stop price.
A Sell stop-limit order is triggered when the last traded price reaches or falls below the stop price of the order. For a Sell stop-limit order, the stop price must be less than the last traded price.
A stop-limit order will revert to a normal limit order (i.e., it will buy or sell the crypto at the specified price or better) once triggered.
For example, here’s how you would place a sell-stop-limit order:
Let’s say you bought 1 ETH at INR 20000. You notice a price drop and decide to sell it at no less than INR 19500 to prevent further loss. You can place a sell stop-limit order with the stop price at INR 19700 and the limit price at INR 19500. Once the price reaches the stop price of INR 19700, your order is activated, it will automatically trigger your ETH sell order at INR 19500.
Steps to place a stop-limit order:
1. Select the cryptocurrency from the exchange screen that you want to trade in.
2. Tap on Stop Limit.
3. Set the limits as per choice.
4. Complete your trade details and confirm to execute.
5. You can view the order details by tapping on My Orders
Once the Stop price is reached on the order book your order will convert to a limit order and will be placed on the order book. This order will be executed once
If an order is placed as a limit order, the order will be executed only once the price conditions are met.
eg: if last traded price for BTC was INR 34,00,100 you can place a buy limit order for INR 34,00,000 or sell limit order for INR 34,00,200
As soon as there is an order that meets this condition the order will get executed.
