limit orders are not alway filled, appprox 2:35pm showed a 209k order. filled and gone. blew through your limit. I do not have level II to take a closer look how the sell orders went in. If there was not a demand for the shares the sellers order would have been , 1st 1000 shares at 30c, second 1000 share at 29c......and would have taken some time to get rid of 209k shares, the last shares would have been the bulk of the shares at .25c and they would have lost their A$$. someone would grab up the bulk of the shares at .25c and the rebound of 32c would made a nice chunk of change. I think the order was placed and filled all at once, or your limit order would have been filled.. only a guess if you truly had a gtc order at .30c
as the message that follows yours at 17-Aug-10 06:05 pm shows, there were no shares bought at 30 cents today. yes many shares were sold below 30 cents, but all the buys were at .31 or higher. even the 100 shares sold at 25 cents were followed by a buy at 32.05 cents ---> 08/17 14:26:47 0.3205 CSE 100 75349 IntMktSwp 08/17 14:26:47 0.25 CBOE 100 75348 IntMktSwp
and the 20,000 shares sold at 26 cents were followed by a buy at 32.09 cents. 08/17 14:26:47 0.3209 CSE 100 75341 IntMktSwp 08/17 14:26:47 0.26 THRD 20000 75340 IntMktSwp
my order did not fill because the market makers really opened up the bid-ask spread when someone dumped a lot of shares in what looks like a panic sell. just the opposite of the panic buy we saw a few days ago where someone ended up paying 42 cents to buy.
this is the nature of the beast with penny stocks.
