Normal Stops are triggered at what price?

Question

hi all, i am testing some really tight stops.

I juts wondered what is the actual trigger for a stop to happen. Is it the mid price (actual price)? or is it the sell price if I have bought a stock & buy price if I have sold?

many thanks :)

Yes. It's the sell price if you have bought, and the buy price if you have sold.

Try on a demo account and you will see exactly what prices are used.

    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
