    A very hypothetical question I'm sure, but All things considered (Volume, Liquidity, etc) how much does an individual transaction affect stock price?

    A specific example: Do you think a single Market buy of $100kof MSFT will have a tangible effect on the stocks price under any circumstances? What about $200k @Market?

    Or what about a tracking stock like QQQ or DIA.. any personal experiences?
