A normal order is a limit order that allows you to set a maximum price for a buy order or a minimum price for a sell order as the order price. A normal buy order can only be executed at or below the set order price and a normal sell order can only be executed at or above the set order price, depending on what is best available in the market. Any unfilled portion of a normal order will be queued for matching until the relevant order expiration date.

Generally, placing a normal order does not guarantee its execution even when the market price reaches your set order price if other orders may have been queued ahead of yours.

How Does Stop Loss Order work?

  1. A stop loss order is a normal order that enable you to preset Stop Loss Price and Lowest Selling Price which you may place with the exchange for processing during the relevant trading session on any relevant trading day. For U.S. securities trading, the stop loss order is processed during the U.S. trading hours on any relevant U.S. trading day.
  2. As the last traded price during U.S. trading hours is used to determine if the Stop Loss Price has been triggered, the opening price of the relevant trading session may be adopted for the earliest triggering of a stop loss order placed on the relevant U.S. trading day
  3. Good-Till-Date (GTD) feature is available for stop loss order in the U.S. market and it allows you to select an expiration date until which such order shall be valid so long as the Stop Loss Price has not been triggered yet. Any un-triggered order will be cancelled at the market close on the expiration date.
  4. If you set the lowest selling price , once the order is triggered at the Stop Loss Price on that trading day, the sale instruction will be carried out at or above the Lowest Selling Price in the same way as a normal order except that any unfilled order (in whole or in part) will lapse at the end of the same trading day and will not be carried forward to the following trading day. Therefore, even if the Stop Loss Price has been triggered, the stop loss order may not be executed (in whole or in part).
  5. If you do not set the lowest selling price, once the order is triggered at the Stop Loss Price on that trading day, the sale instruction will be carried out in the same way as a market order at the current bid/ask price at the time when the order is triggered.
  6. The Stop Loss Price must be lower than the current bid price when the order is placed during trading hours (or the closing price when the order is placed since the market closes) and the Lowest Selling Price must not be lower than 90% of the Stop Loss Price.
