... i've had Apple stock for some time now sitting in my IRA Etrade account ... it's shot up like crazy ...

... would you sell? ... the way it's been shooting up higher and higher is exciting, yet the thought of it all coming crashing down due to some unforeseen event or people getting over the the whole ipad buzz makes me nervous ... part of me thinks i should sell while the going's still good ...

... i'm not sure what that means ... i just happened to throw money into an IRA acct on ETRADE a long time ago ... put it all into Apple stock and just ignored it for years ... didn't open my Etrade statements ... until all this stock news caught my attention ... and when i checked how much i had, i was surprised at how much it had grown ...

Sell Stop Order A sell stop order helps investors to avoid further losses or to protect a profit that exists if a stock price continues to drop. A stop order to sell is always placed below the current market price.

The advantage of a stop order is you don't have to monitor how a stock is performing on a daily basis. The disadvantage is that the stop price could be activated by a short-term fluctuation in a stock's price. Also, once your stop price is reached, your stop order becomes a market order and the price you receive may be much different from the stop price, especially in a fast-moving market where stock prices can change rapidly. An investor can avoid the risk of a stop order not guaranteeing a specific price by placing a stop-limit order.
