1. A stop-loss order is a buy/sell order placed to mitigate the risk of liquidation or potential losses when you are worried that the prices may move against your trade.

2. For example, your limit buy order of BTC has been filled. To mitigate the risk of forced liquidation or potential losses, you can set a stop limit order to sell BTC.

A. Click on [Sell] and [Stop Limit Order]

B. Enter a stop price and an order price.

C. Stop price should be lower than the previous buy price and current price; order price should be ≤ stop price.

D. Click on [Unwind All] and [Sell BTC]. When the stop price is reached, the system will automatically place and fill the order.

Notes:

You have already set a stop loss order to mitigate potential losses. However, you want to buy/sell the token before the pre-set stop price is reached, you can always cancel the stop loss order and buy/sell directly.
