    Hi there,

    I was wondering why does Open Price differ from the stock traded at 9:30.

    for example, lets take PDGI as of today Sept 15th

    It opened on AOL, Yahoo, and Google Finance. It says it opened at 10.17

    But on AOL Finance interactive chart, it says at 9:30 it traded at 10.51 at 9:30

    On Yahoo Finance it says 10.76. These numbers are completely different then the opening price of 10.17

    If i were to put an order on Sunday Night at market price, would i sell the shares of PDGI at 10.17, 10.51 or 10.76.

    Let me know. Thanks.
