    Welland v Chapman

    "They" will try to rush through those stops. Don't use them. Use a mental stop instead. It requires paying attention, but it means you retain control. If "they" manage a flash crash, even a mini, prices will trigger your stop--your stock will be sold at a plunging market price (your stop only guarantees your stock will be sold if the stop is triggered; it doesn't guarantee selling at your stop price.) Then, you could have the unpleasant experience of watching the share price bounce back after you sold $10 lower or whatever. Make your own decision based on your own needs and ideas.
