Trading Rules
1. MARKET OPEN ORDERS
All Market Open orders placed before the opening bell (9:30 a.m. EST) will be executed, based on the opening price, at or around 9:50 a.m. assuming there is sufficient Market Volume for the order. If there is insufficient volume for the order to be executed or an opening price has yet to be established (i.e. there is zero volume), there will be additional attempts to complete the order every 20 minutes until the market closes. If the stock does not generate sufficient trading volume by the closing bell, the order will expire. Also, the orders will be partially filled whenever possible (the remaining un-purchased shares will NOT be filled at a later time for Market Open orders).
2. MARKET CLOSE ORDERS
All Market Close orders will be executed at or around 45 minutes after the closing bell (4:00 p.m. EST), assuming there is sufficient Market Volume for the order. If there is not sufficient volume to complete the entire order, it will be partially filled whenever possible. If there is no volume, the order will expire.
3. MARKET ORDERS
Your market order will be confirmed 20 minutes after being placed. It's possible that, during heavy trading, orders may be slightly delayed.
4. STOP AND LIMIT ORDERS
Each stop and limit order will be checked every few minutes to see if the stop/limit price has been met until the market close. Day orders will expire if the Stop/Limit price is not met. GTC orders will remain open until executed, if ever.
