[TimAlerts] I ask because $OREX is up and I wish I had a took to help me detect which stocks are on the move, when they're actually moving.

[TimAlerts] $KOPN is up on a deal with Samsung although whoever wrote those articles is slick. The deal is between Amazon and Samsung and the article briefly mentions that $KOPN is a similar company that signed a deal with Geortek.

[TimAlerts] There's one report that $KOPN signed a deal with Geortek, which is true. But then there's another report stating they signed a deal with Samsung but that's just not true...

See if you can google what is considered "low float" as different traders have different ideas about it as applies to their plan. Some will say ideally under 100K or under 50K. Another thing to consider is how often the entire float turns over during a period of time.

@snowangel If you placed a market order at the same time, you would buy at whatever price is available until all your shares are filled. If you ordered 1,000 shares you would get the first 500 at 1.02 and the rest at a higher price. If the next seller was 200 shares at 1.05 and then 300 shares at 1.15, you would buy those up as well. It's risky because unless there are a lot of shares available at the price you want, you may get in at a much higher level than anticipated. As more sell orders ge

@snowangel As more sell orders get placed at $1 in the split second after you place your order, I can still get filled at @ $1.

@DapperDude Thank you for your response. I guess it is what you are willing to pay for a share. If you want a fixed price you choose a limit order. If you are a little flexible to put in a Market order.

@snowangel It's my pleasure. =) Well like I said above, you can place a limit order much higher than your desired entry and essentially have the same benefit of a market order without the risk of an order getting processed way too high. Trading is a game of managing risk, which cannot be done with open-ended orders. In my example you can place a limit order of 1.25 and still get processed almost immediately without the slight chance of getting filled at $2 or even more.
