Limit and Stop Entrry Orders Plotting in reverse?


Recommended Posts

So I've done the training but am confused by the Limit and Stop Entry orders as plotted on the IG platform for CFD trading.  In the training, I understand that:

a. if I want to enter a trade to buy a stock at a more favourable price than today (i.e. cheaper than the current price, e.g. 3.32), I can set a limit order.

b. If I want to enter a trade to buy a stock at a LESS favourable than the price today (i.e. more expensive than the current price, e.g. 3.847), I can set a stop order.

So why, when you see the attached screenshot, is the IG platform showing me a Limit order as LESS favourable for a Buy Entry Order (3.847), and MORE favourable for a Stop Order (3.32)?

Isn't this upside down?
