Today, I was trading a stock when suddenly the offer was raised by about 25 cents. Usually I will try to short the stock a the high print. So I send in one order for 400 shares to sell 1 cent below the offer. A few minutes later, I send in another 400 share sell order 5 cents below the offer. He prints out a few minutes later about 10,000 shares at the offer BUT only gives me 100 shares of each order. Which makes no sense at all. Since they were seperated by time i should have gotten 200 shares of one order and none of the other. It shows you that the specialist was simply unwilling to give me shares at a good price. BY the way he immediatley printed 10 cents lower on the next print. Wow these specialist have gotten especially tough in the last few weeks. Anyone have similiar experiences?
