According to my trading platform, FIG opened today down 6.8% and has since rebounded. Only 10,000 shares traded to open the day so perhaps it was just a fat-finger trade and someone entered a market order to sell on the open and there wasn't much liquidity. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
your response has nothing to do with what happened today. clearly someone put a "market" sell order in for 10k shares, either because they didn't understand that you can't put a "market" order in for 10k shares in a stock like FIG, or they did it accidentally. Either way, there was no significance in terms of how FIG is doing.
