Why did my trades close automatically? What is the Stop-Loss or Take-Profit and how are they executed?

Stop Loss and Take-Profit orders are used to automatically close an open position. With a Stop-Loss, losses should be limited, while the Take-Profit is used to protect profits. Once the market price reaches the Stop-Loss or Take-Profit level, the position is closed at the current available market price. However, with both order types, it cannot be guaranteed that the predetermined exit level will exactly match the actual exit price. If the market price rises or falls above/below the predetermined exit level, higher profits or losses than the desired ones may occur.
