Usually a stop order should be entered as a market order (no limit). This means the trade will definitely be executed, but not necessarily at or near the stop price. Check your settings in the DOM or chart trader by right clicking. I find it strange the guy at Mirus did not explain it more clearly.

NT's standard "stop" orders are actually stop-limit orders. If the market moved past the limit half of the order without fist filling your stop, the limit order could never get filled.

Please provide more specifics, what market, what date/time and price your stop was located. Did you use a stop limit or stop market?


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

There's some detail missing here isn't there. Stop wasn't filled, was he not watching at the time?

I once had a stop that didn't fill, I just called them up and they closed the position. It was an issue with the platform showing the stop was active when it was not. Very minimal damage to the account. All stops have a CME imposed fill zone eg for NQ it's 6 points. If I set a market stop and it's not possible to fill it within a range of 6 points the market will gap through with your stop not filled. That's what Mirus told me. Different limits for different contracts.

It would probably take some significant shock to world markets but its possible.
