May god bless all and bless the money earn no matter which way they earned it.
akb: It is a rule of the JSE. If you don't like it, complain to them. If you put in a bid to buy at a limit price, that price will remain on the system until it matches or expires. You will get your price. But, if you put in a sell offer, the JSE will match that against any better bids. It is to the advantage of the seller. Yes, it has happened to me many times. No, I have never been unhappy with it.
when u make it funny ....it gets read...yet everyone here is answering seriously...why...the all have there own perception of trading..the new comers only see a buy as buy and a sell as sell,yet others place in orders with what perception....makes u think does it not??????????
abk, maybe you should trade abo again, 1c makes a big difference there. The bottom line is: If you want to use a stop loss, USE a stop loss, you cannot insert you own manual stoploss system by trying to sell your shares at a lower price that the current price. It will never work that way
