  1. Hi.How often on average one will get a partial fill say on GOOG, AAPL, RIMM.On what that depends.
  2. Depends on how many shares and if you use a Limit Order.
  3. ok say 400-1000 shares and limit .what if market?
  4. Market order will get filled right away.
    Limit order will get filled right away if the limit is the ask price.
  5. hey man what i'm asking is how often i will get a PARTIAL FILL on those shares using limit and market orders.
  6. 1000 shares of goog you'll get probably all 100 to 200 share orders.many times on 100 shares you get a partial. aapl is thick so you should get many of the 1000 hits but it moves so fast you'll get some partials
