Stop orders with protection are intended to avoid cascading stop orders being executed at extreme prices. A stop order with protection is activated when the market trades at the stop trigger price and can only be executed within the protection range limit. The order enters the order book as a limit order with the protection price limit equal to the trigger price plus or minus the pre-defined protection point range. Protection point values usually equal half of the Non-reviewable range. Refer to www.cmegroup.com for a list of the Non-reviewable range per product. For bid orders, protection points are added to the trigger price to calculate the protection price limit. For offer orders, protection points are subtracted from the trigger price.

CME Globex matches the order at all price levels between the trigger price and the protection price limits. If the order is not completely executed, the remaining quantity is then placed in the order book at the protection price limit.
