The market maker just made a fool of me because I forgot to enter the all or none condition. This price run is all due to a 1500 share market trade that got filled at 2.5, 2.75. 3.0 and 3.1875. What a ripoff!
Thanks for the post. I tend to buy/sell at the market, and many times without the AON qualifier. This is probably ok for heavily traded stocks, but not for this one. If STRZ as a minimum, can just hold its own and maintain its cash flow, I still think that this stock is probably a pretty good buy at this price range.
You should always use 'limit' orders with thinly traded issues. The market maker for this stock is especially cheezy. I had a GTC order to buy 1000 shares at 2 9/16 from the end of Dec until early Feb and the MM would always buy just above that and never fill it. Anyway, don't get too excited about Wheaton spending his pocket change. This quarter's poor results will probably be blamed on "unseasonably bad weather" (no, I don't know anything - just figure we are about due for that excuse and Wheaton may have run out non-operating charges).
I wanted all the shares at the current market price or none of them. Instead of putting i n a limit order at 2 5/8 I assumed I would get all the shares at market. Instead the mm trickled them out 100 to 500 shares at atime. i have alerted fidelity and the SEC not that they will do anything.
