  4. I was not involved in this particular trade, but something like that happened to me a few months ago due to an entry error. I sold ISLE on the bid before the market opened.

    If I had been an institution I could have gotten the trade busted, but since I'm not, I had to eat the loss.

  5. This wasn't an entry error. The guy was bidding for a long time before the open. And I hit him couple of minutes before the open. There was also INCA bid at 52.05, but I was too slow to get him. It's all fare.

  6. Interesting. I didn't know that. But even if it had been an entry error, I wouldn't blame you. It's certainly not your responibility to call up the exchange and have your trade busted because the fill was too good for you.
