    I'm looking forward to your visit and both classes!

    We have about 8 of us coming down from Fort Collins, and we're all primed for the "Bright Bands."
  3. Great!! My brother and I will see you guys tomorrow night. See if you can come into the office on Thursday...we'll show you the openings as well.

    For C I had a buy limit at 35.39

    C opened at 34.35 but I did not get a fill.

    I used OpenOnly orders though IB. I thought they had to fill me since my order was marketable on the open.

    Confused :confused:

    That's strange...

    I find it very useful with Bright to have the opening indications. If I saw that C was gapping down like that I could check the news, and probably just cancel my C orders that day.
  7. well, i lost in it too. fortunately, i held 400 of the 700 until it got back to a little above even, so it wasn't a complete disaster. i know don would've made big money in it.

    i've learned that i just don't trade certain stocks well, and so i just take them off. i'm considering taking this one off, as the same thing happened to me yesterday.

    I know, there is nothing like dumb luck :) But anyway ... i just thought I should have been filled.

    Did the order(s) cancel as soon as C opened like they should have? or did they sit there until you cancelled them by hand?

    They cancelled immediately after the open (both the buy and sell).
