Terminology

Stop Loss Order — is an order at a worse price point than the current market price.

Market order — it gets filled at whatever the current bid or ask is.

Fixed stop loss — placed at a fixed price point different (and worse) than your entry price. Fixed stop loss is entered manually. It doesn’t move after you’ve placed it.
