A technical question or two
I placed two orders for Alexandria Minerals (ALXDF on the Pink Sheets), in two separate accounts, with two different brokerages, one with a limit of $0.0950, the other with a limit $0.0965, both around 1:00PM EDT. When I checked on them this evening, neither had gone through, and meanwhile the quoted price of the stock leapfrogged my orders downward to $0.0910 shortly after I entered the orders. There was volume today of 5,500 shares, which is less than either of my orders, but I did not put an AON on either. (I don't think my brokers would let me, anyway.) So I have two questions:
Did someone buy ALXDF for $0.0910 after I put my order in for a higher limit price?
And if so, how does that happen? Where is the justice? What's going on?
