I am under the beleif that besides using arca.....a person cannot buy or sell through the specialist's price. Many times i have wanted to buy the 1000 shares on island one cent out of market but i cant hit them because the specialist is showing 100 shares at the market price. So i would like to know how these orders of 20k went through on OI a couple days ago. It cant be an out of sequence print as i have those filtered out....also if it had a special condition attached to it that condition would show in my SI Condition column......so my T&S's tells me that those two trades happened at that time and i cant understand how that could happen. Does the new hybrid system allow trading through the specialist now? Or is there another explanation for this that i am unaware of?
It's a bit hard to read any times, if any...I see .77 offers at times...and T&S just shows the trades....If you see something again, let me know the same day and I can see exactly what happened.
Also, on your service what does "D" stand for? I see the "E" for error correction, which is another possible explanation.
