*For a buy order, stop loss should be set below: bid price-min stop distance*point size
**For a sell order, stop loss should be set above: ask price+min stop distance*point size
*** Intuitively, if the tick price is rounded to two decimal places, then the point size is 0.01. In other words, 1 point= 0.01 currency. If the tick price is an integer, then the point size is 1. In other words, 1 point=1 currency. For example, 1 point equals to 1 penny for UK100, whereas 1 point equals to 1 cent for China50.
