On the close I bought 1000 shares at $83.6 with a stop loss at $82.6, I didn't get a confirm on the sale yet, but I do the stop loss is still on the order. Whew, I guess my broker will call me to let me know I've been stopped out in the AM. all I can say is stupid people that don't educate themselves and don't even know what a stop order is, shouldn't be in the markets.
WARNING: READ A BUNCH OF BOOKS BEFORE INVESTING AND ALWAYS USE STOP LOSS ORDERS! You know you're good when you only lose $1000 on a "Black Swan" event like this one.
I lost over $1000 on this trade but that's better than losing $8000!!!
Stop loss orders normally aren't looked at after hours, in part because of the wide bid-ask spreads and the possibility of small trades at wild prices setting off stops, and partly because you can't have market orders after hours. Anyway, looking at time&sales, the first print below 82.6 is firstname.lastname@example.org at 16:56:10, then email@example.com, then the bid/ask drops to 79.13/79.30 and there's a series of 1- and 2-lot trades mostly at 79.30. If you're lucky, your stop-loss was filled then.
I had a stop limit at $82.6 so when it traded through my limit I was auto filled. Doesn't matter if it printed or not, since my order was in, the broker is on the hook and will have to give me the fill confirmation regardless.
That's what I'm talking about!! Never been happy to lose before but I'll take it. LOL
Since nobody else wants to break the bad news to you , I will. Just because you had a stop loss in doesn't mean you sold at that price especially after hours. If you don't take that stop loss off, you will sell at the open whatever that price is unless its a stop limit which will only sell at the price you picked.
if he's telling the truth he'll be in for a shock in the am. he didn't get a fill after hours that's for sure. i can't help but think this is bs. the big talkers are generally pretty stupid.
stupid people? let's refrain from calling names, this is from the same person who "bought in big at 88"? so either you're a liar or you lost big and shouldn't be calling people stupid. which is it?
Depends on how you entered the stop loss. I hope you are as smart as you think. If this stock didn't print a trade at 82.6 on the way down you got closed out at the first trade after that. Maybe 10 points lower.
