Okay, I had a 4 figure share "Buy" at a limit price IN on $RGEN and the market makers kept making it disappear on Level 2. It would show back during price fluctuations, but then it would be gone once, twice, thrice. Anyone know the who, what, when, where, why's on this sort of thing?
I don't know if I answered your question. Don't know if you got your order or not. What your describing is some attention getting software. That's written for the purpose of deception more bells and whistles, than anything else.
I got to believe you were a little to low or ran into traffic. Some people use the option 'all or nothing ' in that case could keep you from getting picked up.Figure brokers don't give a rats #$%$ about price. They make their money on the customer order. I sometime buy small amounts on slow days. I have this feeling they have watch dog software that sniffs out orders. Having someone with market knowledge with cash . Who is very versed in buying and selling . I think they use this kind of partner to get all orders off the table. That's just paranoia on my part after a while you get outcropping 's on basically anything you do for a length of time ? More that likely you were over looked and I would call your broker and complain. That might work did it a number of times.
