Protective Stop

A strategy that aims to limit potential losses to a desired amount by using a stop-loss or stop-limit order.

For example, a trader or investor may execute a protective stop by setting a stop-loss order for 10% below what he or she paid for the stock, therefore limiting the loss to 10%.
