Stop orders are submitted on the opposite side of the market than normal Limit orders. A buy stop order is submitted at a price higher than the current best bid but does not fill until that price trades. A sell stop order is submitted at a price lower than the current best offer price.

Note that if the market is moving rapidly you may get filled at a worse price than the one you entered. If you want to prevent this by setting a limit price for the stop then you can do so with the Order Ticket.

Stops are useful as loss limits as you can use them to close out a position automatically if the market goes against you.

Stop Limit is a stop order in which you place a limit on how many tics from the trigger price you are willing to let the order run.
