How to keep stop losses from disappearing?

Recommended Posts

I'm aware that this may be a stupid question to some but I'm baffled that when I'm placing my stop loss in DAS that they disappear the next day? I queried with DAS tech support and they responded along the lines of...
"Kindly note unfortunately all open orders are cancelled by the route provider during the after-hours period. "

So, for those that swing trade. How do you keep a stop loss order on your positions? Do you place them again every day? Or is there a magical way to keep a stop loss order live until it's hit or you manually exit the trade?

Hi Drew,

When you place stop loss order, set your TIF=GTC.  GTC means Good Till Cancel.

Best of luck.
