I am a novice trader and a question about trading. If I do multiple trades of same ticker in the same day how does it gets executed? does it settle for each trade or the broker just does the accounting for multiple trades and settles the final trade in the end of the day. ex: If i buy the 100 AAPL stocks 3 times at different prices and sell them 100 APPL stocks at 2 different prices. So effectively, I bought 100 stocks. Does each of my trade goes through the cycle of buy and sell or my broker will just credits and deducts my sales and purchases and the net (sale or purchase) goes through the entire cycle at the end of the day. Thank you.
