What is the stop-loss trigger price?

Stop-loss orders are designed in such a way that the order remains inactive until the last traded price reaches the limit order price.

The stop-loss trigger price enables the user to define at what price the stop loss order should get activated. Once the last traded price reaches the trigger price, the stop-loss order is eligible to be executed on the exchange.
