Edit order and add a stop-loss

Sharenet Securities are pleased to announce that their clients are now able to place stop-loss orders as well edit existing orders.

A stop-loss order is an order placed to sell a security when it reaches a certain price designed to limit an investor’s loss on a position. A stop-loss order takes the emotion out of trading decisions and can be especially handy when one cannot watch his/her position.

In the past if you wanted to edit the price, quantity or expiry date of an order, clients had to cancel and re-enter the order. But not anymore. Clients can simply hit the edit icon to change an order’s parameters. Add or reduce order quantity or modify the expiration time/date and do all of this without jeopardising your time priority of that order.
