If the SL module is enabled, then after creating a position, a Stop Loss will be placed, according to your settings.

  • Virtual Market - virtual order that executes the orders of other market participants
  • Stop Market - real stock order. Stop market order uses a stop price as a trigger. However, when the stop price is reached, it triggers a market order* instead.

Order trigger

Additional option for virtual orders.
A trigger by which a virtual Stop Loss activates closing a position with a real order. The setting is ignored for a Stop Market order.
  • Order book check the Sell Limit Price (ASK) for Long Position and Buy Limit (BID) for Short Position Protects against false price movements (squeezes)
  • 1m candle, 3m candle ... The first value is the timeframe of the candle. If the trigger candlestick closes at or below the SL level for a Long position, then the Stop Loss will be triggered. For a Short position, the logic is reversed - the closing price of the candle will be equal to the price of the SL or higher.

Rearrangement of level

If enabled, then after averaging the price the SL position will move to the same distance to the position price as to the averaging.
