why did my order stop out


Recommended Posts

I had a perfect entry all set up on my metatrader, woke up to it being stopped out, highly annoying as it had no drawdown whatsoever and the spread was nowhere near. Do we know why this is? it would have been on 7.5R now aswell. so highly annoyed.

any help please, thanks Guy

Hi, you need to look at the mt4 trade data in the 'Terminal' panel 'under account history' which will tell you where the stop was activated. 

It's easy to mix up pips and points on the mt4 platform (10 points equals 100 pips).

If still not sure you can post a pic of the mt4 chart and the relevant line in the mt4 account history.

hi, no not margin, margin dictates whether you can enter the trade in the first place.

But the spread may well be the culprit for an unexpected early stop out. You can check by having the bid with the ask price on the chart to see if the stop level was hit

You used a tradingview chart to show the trade but need to see on the mt4 platform what were the actual values in order to see when the stop was triggered (Terminal icon top row, account history)

Im not able to disect your thread entirely, but spreads do change, if you didn't know.  This happened to me many times in my early days trading and it made me paranoid.  the spread can fluctuate depending on volatility etc.  Larger spread occur during low volume volatility.  this leads to premature stops.

Maybe worth takig a closer look.

I should have mentioned that maintenance margin can be a factor in stopping out a trade if price runs heavily against you but discounted that as your chart showed price moving straight up.

One of the reasons why your order stopped out is that there might be problems with the terminal process. Have you addressed this concern to the site. I think it is better to have it directly addressed by the company. There might be also problem at your end.

Hi @theruleof7

Thanks for the question

The trade was stopped out basis the stop level instructed at 0.90537. The trade was stopped out at a price of 0.90493 meaning that you incurred 4.4 points worth of slippage. I have attached a screenshot indicating the time your stop was triggered. Remember to always check the bid price when selling to close and the ask price if buying to close. I hope this helps. 

Many thanks

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
