Hi @Lester_Rosenbaum,

I’ll do my best to add some clarity, but without additional information about these questions, I’m limited in how much I can help. If you have questions about Achievable quizzes, can you please use the feedback icon :email: in the top right corner of the screen? This gives us information about the specific question you’re looking at.

A buy limit order would allow them to set an order that lets them buy if the price drops. If they want to increase their position, this could be an answer. However, if the customer wants to limit their loss, a sell stop order, which allows them to sell after losing a certain amount, would be more appropriate.

Breaking through resistance means the stock value is going up. A sell limit order could be appropriate if the customer holds the stock and wants to sell at a certain point.

Yes, buy limit and sell stop orders are adjusted by default.

I’d recommend you review these chapters in our textbook:

@Justin Thank you very much!
