I bought a parcel of shares today and got them at 0.255 per share. this was .005 above the price in my watch list but wasnt too fussed about it. At the time I just thought, ah the quote on my watch lists is only in hundredths of the dollar not thousandths
So after my purchase I had at the last ten trades out of curiosity. Now the thing thats bugging me is that every trade before and after mine came in at .250! all the last ten trades are at 15:59 so theres not a big time gap between them and there are parcels both larger and smaller than mine in the list.
Am I just unlikely that i got it on a (really tiny) spike? had I clicked back and sent the order again before I had hit submit i am sure I would have got the for .250.
Its only $100 so i'm not going to lose any sleep over it. i'm more curious than anything
thanks for anyone who can shed some light on it for me!
