So ok, I’m new to this so maybe there’s something that I don’t know, but before the start of today’s trading I put a stop order to buy DAL shares at 23.20$. When the stock market opened, the price went up, exceeded the 23.20$ price, got to 23.78$, and then started dropping. My order was executed at exactly 23.78$, literally the highest price before it started dropping. What gives?
Same thing happened with another stock. The order was executed at the literal highest point before dropping although I set the order much lower.
