per my investment broker. They told me something big was going to be announced.
They said I would get out at 36.00 flat tomorrow if the news as bad.
I love my investment firm.
You are not protected. Stop will sell at whatever the price is at the open, which will likely be the low of the day. You should have put a limit order on the sell so you wouldn't have been wiped out at the open and then could have perhaps gained a bit during the day.
Too bad, I've been there before.
