What is your maximum possible loss?

What happens to the maximum loss if you simultaneously place a stop buy order at $78?

    The Max possible loss will be increasingly unbounded if P --> infinite.

    If you simultaneously place a stop-buy order at $78, the maximum possible loss per share is $8.
