I set a buy limit of $2.90 and it never processed my order. Now it's too late. Any advice to why? (I'm a relatively new trader).

There may have only been a few shares available at 2.90. Buy limit doesn't automatically get filled. There has to be shares. Whether you bought at 2.90 or 3.00 won't matter much when the stock is back to $15. Don't try to time the bottom.
Ok makes more sense, thank you
