Hi all, just a quick noob question: I put a sell order on my small amount of WKHS shares before the market opened (I expected a drop that didnt come…). The order got filled at 22.85USD whereas the share price at the 23.88USD at that opening of market. Can anyone explain the much lower order fill price? Does this mean that putting in an order pre-market is not smart and you should wait till market opens to play more ‘on the ball’ with the price? Any tips here?
Yeah and the only way to have sold at say 25 in this case would be to have sold near the end of the previous trading day.
If you watch the after hours and pre-market you can see what was happening. Unfortunately T212 don’t show it or allow trading out of standard hours so if you place an order before open you’ll get whatever it is on open.
If you use TV you can see in this case the build up.
