The trading widget of Altrady allows you to place stop-limit buy and sell orders with the click of a button. The stop-limit order type in the trading widget lets you manually enter or configure the percentage of assets to be bought and sold as well as the stop price and the buying/selling price.

A stop-limit order, as the name suggests, is a combination of stop orders (where assets are bought and sold only after they reach a certain price) and limit orders (where traders have a maximum price for which they’ll buy the assets or minimum price for which they’ll sell them).
