Market or Limit order

Discussion in 'Order Execution' started by bearnbull, Oct 19, 2006.

  1. On a very fast moving market and you want to get out of a position, do you do a market order and hope to get filled within reason even if its not the best price?? I notice that when I do a limit order I sometimes only get a partial fill. When the market is moving in one direction it sometimes passes part of my order.
    Any comments?
  2. If I want out then I get out. Market order.

    There are techincal issues with stop orders in hybrid stocks. There have been late reports and/or erroneous time stamps. It is confusing at best, and if you are charged for orders in over 5 minutes, it is costing you money. (Thank you NYSE and Mr. Fain)
