I was following a stock heading in the downward direction. I put in a limit-buy at 2.50 price point.
The stock eventually hit 2.50 and proceeded to go down until 2.44. The limit-buy order however, never triggered.
The stock has meanwhile soared to 2.93. That’s a lot of profit loss.
Anyone have an idea why the limit-order did not trigger? I am pretty sure that I set the order before the stock hit the limit, but I cannot see at what time the order was created to verify. Still, the buy should have triggered.
