Let us understand how stop-loss works with the help of an example. Geeta wants to buy 100 shares of XYZ company at a price of ₹100 each. She is skeptical about the market is bullish, so she puts a stop loss at ₹96 and a trigger price at ₹97.

How to Put Trailing Stop Loss in Kotak Securities?

You can also put a trailing stop loss in Kotak Securities and also its different apps. Trailing stop loss as the name suggests is the one that trails or follows. 

Kotak Securities gives you the chance to put the trailing stop loss on your order. Let us look at the procedure.

  • After this, select the scrip from the dropdown menu.
  • Fill in the details of the quantity (100) and price (₹100) that you desire.

  • Now select ‘TSLO’ (trailing stop-loss order)
  • After you select the trailing stop loss, a lot of other options will also appear on the screen.

  • Click on ‘place order’ to apply your trailing stop loss.
  • Review your order, and press confirm.

  • You will be given a reference number and your trailing stop-loss will be set.

Now suppose the market price of the stock reaches ₹150 then the stop loss trailed at the rate of 0.5  i.e. with an increase in the value of ₹1 the stop loss moves up by 0.5 points. 

Since there is a price difference of ₹50 thus the new stop loss would be ₹121 (96+25)
