Question

What is the benefit of putting a limit on a Stop or Trailing Stop Order?

Answer

You can place a ‘limit' on your stop or trailing stop order to give you extra protection and flexibility.

For example, you may want to sell the stock if the share price slips down to your stop level, although would prefer to hold on to the stock if it crashes through your stop level. Using limits on your stops allows this capability.
