On 11/15/22 I placed a "Stop Loss" order, stating that as long as the stock price stayed the same or went higher, I did NOT want to sell it. However, if the stock price was to drop by x dollars per share at any time in the future, it should sell.
Today, 11/17/22, it sold automatically for a price of $518.165 per share.
That gave me a $20.885 per share profit or in excess of a 4% increase on my investment in 15 business days.
