Biggest size goes first.
You can be "sized out" by the rules, and/or left out of a previous order filled at a different price....any stock that trades that little may have left over orders from an hour or a week ago.
The rule is simply that you cannot be "traded through" your price.
and we all know, the rules are followed at all times. /sarcasm
From the STC Series 7 study manual:
"According to NYSE rules, specialists may never compete with public orders. They can bid higher or offer lower to reduce the spread between a bid and ask on a stock."

Specialists are acting like the hurt animals they are, they cannot survive, and they know it. Until they're gone, I'd rather trade naz.
you put it well. I don't know how long they will be able to carry it off, or what they will morph themselves into. But scared animal is a fitting image I think.
i prefer to be in control of my orders at all time.
that is most definitely an <i>edge.</i>

You might have to click the box and then hit the "back" button.
OK, I'm sorry, specialists. It's a joke. And, I'm sorry too, cows.
