    been buying a few stocks on good exploration announcements just before 10am.
    but noticed they dont start trading time like similiar stocks in their alphabetical bracket

    when do they start trading?
    sometimes it seems more like 10.13 and these stocks are not in trading halt
    with the good announcement there are huge orders on the buy side pushing the stock up and it is difficult to know when to place your order.

    another basic question is XT stands for cross trade but what does that actually mean?

    cheers craig

    Its when there is a cross trade in a single broker. When a broking firm has a buy order from a client and a sell order at the same price.... which is at the market price. Then they can trade within the firm.
