Loss (2)

If you opened a transaction, but your expectations were not met and the price chart went the other way, the income from your transaction is now reflected in the terminal with a "minus" - it is not yet recorded as a loss. In order not to lose too much, traders set up a special line to limit losses, this is called a stop-loss (see). Once the price chart comes to this line, the transaction is automatically closed, not allowing the trader to lose more than he can afford.
