Stop orders are designed to manage trading risk, so they are placed on the losing side of a trade. You can create a stop order before or after creating a market or an entry order. Simply check a box and enter your stop price. Net stops control your entire exposure for a given currency pair, and can be added by clicking on the blank cell in the Stop/Limit (Net column). The trailing stop feature allows you to further protect gains or limit losses by tracking price direction and automatically moving the stop as the price moves in your favor. As you can see, the platform offers a number of convenient ways for you to control your trading risk.
