Limit and Stop Entry Orders Plotting in reverse?

Question

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?

    • Are you seeing what I'm seeing, Jasmin? 🤯
    • Look, I will gladly get paid to do technical analysis and never put another trade on in my life 😘
    • Here's the value of the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF tracker at the start of February and most recent price:     Here's the SPDR  S&P U.S. Dividend Aristocrats by comparison       The SPDR index has an annual yield of 2.53% and a five-year annualized return of 12.19% The Vanguard index has an annual yield of 1.47% and a five-year annualized return of 16.39%   So my question is, why would anybody choose the Dividend Aristocrat index over the S&P 500 index?
