Stop Order

A stop order goes live at a pre-determined stop price and will be filled at market price (it becomes a market order). If the market price never reaches the stop price, the order will not be triggered. The stop price cannot guarantee you with any certain filled price (because it executes as a market order). If you hope to set a bottom line to stop loss, please consider a stop-limit order. 

Assume the current market price of a stock is $50: 

1) If you submit a buy stop order at $55, and later the market price rises to $55, the buy stop order will be triggered, become a market order, and begin to be filled at the closest price to $55 depending on volume at that price. 

2) If you submit a sell stop order at $46, and later the market price drops to $46, the sell stop order will be triggered, become a market order, and begin to be filled at the closest price to $46 depending on the volume at that price.
