Traded thru - definition?!?!?

Discussion in 'Trading' started by axeman, Jul 11, 2002.

  1. For NYSE stocks...can someone give me a DETAILED
    definition/description of what it means to be traded thru?

    For example....suppose we have the following:

    30.00 x 30.10 lastPrint: 30.05

    You enter a bid at 30.04
    Is it possible for a print to occur at 30.03 without
    taking you out?

    Or do you have to place an order below the bid at 29.99 to
    guarantee you are not printed thru???

    Getting real tired of the market moving right through
    my orders. :confused:
