    • Can you be more specific? I have no idea what you mean by selling stock in two pieces?

      When you put in buy order, for say 200 shares, there may be an infinite combination - well not infinite, but a lot of them anyway - of people selling theirs. Someone may be selling 5 shares (at 17.95), someone else 195 (for 17.90). Computerized trading matches up your buy order with other people selling theirs, and your cost basis will be the weighted average of the two. Your broker will only charge you for one trade however.
