TIMING YOUR TRADES
Don, Iíve tried everywhere, but I canít find an answer to this question and I think youíd know. If I place a limit order after 9:30 am on Pfizer (Pfe) to the Nyse, and Pfe hasnít opened yet on the Nyse, is that order eligible to participate on the opening cross? óBottle4411
The Nyse accepts orders after 9:30 for the opening-only print, and of course for day orders as well. You have a slight risk in your timing in that if the order is not in for a few seconds, you may be locked out of the trade.
