Introducing Trailing Stop-Loss with GTT

#ProfitProtector: Stop-Loss that dynamically adjusts with markets

Deciding when to exit a position can be tricky, with factors like company reports, rule changes, and global news influencing market moves.

We often exit too early, missing out on profits, or hold on too long, resulting in bigger losses.

But now, there’s a better way to manage your trades and exit your positions more efficiently.

Introducing, Trailing Stop-Loss with GTT orders

Tap to know more, 100%

A smart Stop-Loss order that adjusts as the market moves. For instance, you buy a stock at ₹100 and place a Trailing Stop-Loss at ₹90, keeping a ₹10 gap. If the stock price rises to ₹110, the stop loss adjusts to ₹100, maintaining the gap. As the price reaches ₹130, the stop loss becomes ₹120. If the stock price then falls, the stop loss doesn’t drop; it stays at ₹120. This way, it locks in profits when the stock rises, but doesn’t reduce when the stock falls, protecting you from bigger losses.
