Unless you've actually had an outstanding order that got filled during one of these "flash" moves, there's no way to know that. In cases like these, there are a limited number of shares that are going to trade in the spike, and I'm pretty sure that at most brokerages some accounts have priority over others. I'm not sure if this kind of information is even available to the general public (and I probably should have done some research before getting involved in this...
Should have left it alone! Frankly, trying to make real-time adjustments to limit orders is a fool's game unless you're a professional. I play around the edges sometimes, but there's no way you can keep up with the pros or programmed trading swings. (edit: I see you did this before the open, and it could have been any time over the weekend, so fair enough)Do you think your $95 limit order would have filled? It was likely only below $95 for a very short time. I'm very...
Your limit order is suspect. Just 3 days ago you said your order was at $95 http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/187828/apple-cant-outrun-china-worries-stock-drops-into-bear-territory#post_2764591(though I completely agree on the Cramer comment)QFT:I didn't sign in purely to harass you, my original intent was to ask if your order went through, given that the price briefly touched $92. The meat of the question being to understand how good your brokerage is in situations...
You're on the right track. Tiny "fix" above and I'm all over your comments here 100%It doesn't matter to me if it's google, adobe or anyone, they have no business recording, transcribing, or otherwise analyzing and "owning" my voice messages. Ever.The difference is, I don't believe that's any of Apple's business to own that data either. Sure, they're better than companies whose entire business models revolve around gathering personal information of their users, but NO...
My first thought as well. This seems like a great idea, and I do like the way TMo pushes the industry envelope, but how will this be viewed in terms of net neutrality?
It seems like you're not listening to what some of us have written. Software is not always a good substitute for hardware. Read this for a very serious example:http://www.wired.com/2015/07/hackers-remotely-kill-jeep-highway/EVERYONE should ready ^this^ articleHardware provides safety, and it provides a verifiable way for people to be in control of their own devices. Vehicles are an extreme case of this, but the same issues exist with home automation and many other...
I just went and read up on Republic Wireless. Very interesting concept, and I wish them good luck. The more variety in phone plans and capabilities we have, the better.They have plans as cheap as $5/month, and the closest thing to my needs would probably be $10/month. That said, I have no interest in a "smart" phone, but rather, just a plan and a cheap flip phone without "smart" capabilities; I already have a nice iPhone without any data plan that gives me almost...
I totally agree. This new system sounds like it revolves around trust. When you get to physically decide which SIM/company you want to use, then you know without a doubt what's happening. You don't need anyone else to do it at a store, you don't need to remember codes, you don't need to "trust" things under the covers. When something as important as this is now dependent on software, it's a different story. I don't necessarily mistrust Apple's intent on this effort,...
You caught my interest with this comment, but after looking at your location I'm guessing you meant A$19, not $19, is that right?If there's a prepaid plan in the US where you can pay $19 for 3 months, let me know where it is!
Well, there has been a wave of counterfeit bills in my region recently, so the "as long as it's real" can indeed be an issue. Criminals and opportunists are everywhere, unfortunately.Honestly, I'm not sure how or why a prepaid Visa (not store-specific gift cards, to avoid more pedantic comments like Soli left earlier) is more prone to fraud than a typical debit or credit card. There is probably some real, actuarial-based reasoning behind the scenes, but I'm not seeing it...
