Rolling a Stop Up

To increase a stop price to keep profiting from a long position. For example, suppose one buys a stock at $20 with a stop price of $22 (meaning the stock will be sold automatically if the price hits $22 in order to lock in profit). If the price appears to be trending upward, the holder may roll the stop up to $24 to try for higher gains.
