Why my Trade was Closed before it Reached the Stop Loss?

Modified on: July 12, 2023

  • Charts on the Trading Platform are created using the Bid Price. 
  • Closing of Buy Orders is triggered by the Bid Price so you will see the chart line hitting the Stop Loss. 
  • On the other hand, the closing of Sell Order is triggered by the Ask Price, which is not visible by default, hence why the Stop Losses of Sell Orders may happen on prices not visibly seen on the Chart. 
  • The Ask Line can be enabled by right-clicking on the chart, selecting properties, and enabling the option.
