Who, I am asking is selling stock by two pieces? I put request to buy couple of hundreds CQP and I get it by 2 pieces for 200 times. Who in the hell selling stocks by 2 pieces. is that how people drop or raise a price? Can someone please explain.
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.
Thank you for responce. Yes, I was trying to get 400 and I get 400, but 200 times by 2 pieces. So looks like someone selling only 2 stocks, then another one selling two stocks and so on. Yes, I know I will be charged as one transaction, but I want to know if there is teqnique to lower price by selling only two stocks?
