ICICI Direct customers can place a stop-loss order in the ICICI Direct website or mobile app using the regular buy/sell order form. You just have to fill an additional field 'Stop Loss Trigger Price' in the order form and place the order.

A stop-loss (SL) order gets activated only when the set trigger price is reached. The SL order type is used to limit the loss of a position.


You buy a stock Rs 250 in the expectation that the price will go up. However, in the event the price falls, you would like to limit your losses.

You may place a limit sell order specifying a Stop loss trigger price of Rs 205 and a limit price of Rs 200. Once the last traded price touches Rs 205, the sell order gets converted into a limit sell order at Rs 300.

How do I set a "sell" at a higher price than what I have bought. Example I bought at 200/- and I want to set a 'sell' automatically if the price reaches 205. I know about SLTP that can be set to sell when the prices are going down. accordingly how to set in reverse? This question is specifically to do this in ICICI Direct.
