Such a move has been made in order to give the market room for small price hikes and possible noise. If the price reaches the level of take profit before the stop-loss level, the transaction is closed and fixed income.
If the opening price of the transaction reaches the stop-loss at this level will open another transaction in the same direction. Since forming the aggregate position for which is determined by the weighted average opening price, which by definition is much better than the opening price of the first transaction.
