How to Use the Stop Limit Function

A stop-limit order will execute at a given price (the limit price) when the stop price becomes active.

Once the market price has hit the stop price, the stop-limit order becomes a limit order to buy or sell at the given limit price. This order type allows you to set good entry and exit points for your trades.

The key to stop-limit orders is wisely choosing the limit price and the stop price. In general, the stop price should be set below the limit price for buy orders. For sell orders, the stop price should be set above the limit price.

  • Stop price. This is the price at which the limit order becomes active. 
  • Limit price. This is the price at which the order is added to the orderbook. The trade will be executed at the limit price. 
  • Quantity. The amount of cryptocurrency to be bought or sold at the limit price.

How to Place Orders on Kyrrex

To place an order on Kyrrex, go to Trade. You can place an immediate (Market) order or a pending (Limit) order. 

To view the Order Entry panel, select Terminal > Order entry. 

This panel contains the following entries:

  • Symbol: The ticker for the cryptocurrency trading pair. The Ethereum and Bitcoin pair is ETH/BTC.
  • Side: The direction of trade. This is either Buy or Sell.
  • Quantity: The amount of the coin to be traded. You can select a preset value from the dropdown list here or simply type the precise quantity yourself.
  • Order type: Defines the type of order: Market, Limit, Stop, Trailing stop, or OCO, etc.
  • Market order. An order to buy or sell the cryptocurrency at the current market price.
  • Limit order. An order to buy or sell the cryptocurrency when the market price reaches the limit price specified in the order.
  • Stop limit order. An order to buy or sell the cryptocurrency at the specified limit price when the market price reaches the stop price.
  • The Stop price is the price at which the limit order is triggered. This price should be higher than the limit price for buy orders and lower than the limit price for sell orders.
  • OCO (One-Cancels-the-Other): An order that combines a limit order with a stop order. When one order is triggered, the other is canceled.
  • Trailing stop order. A stop order that follows the market price at a certain distance (the trailing offset). The stop price keeps moving in the same direction as the market price but stops when the market price changes direction. A market order is submitted when the stop price is "hit".
