Stop-loss limit

A stop-loss limit represents a kind of warning to the investor. If the underlying instrument climbs above, or falls beneath, this limit, the knock-out certificate does not expire, but loses in value significantly. The investor then receives a residual value which depends on the knock-out limit.
