TIME & SALES SHEETS
A friend referred me to you; he says you know everything there is to know about the stock market. At the end of the day, is there a universal time and sales sheet, or does every brokerage house have its own? May I trouble you for the time and sales sheet for AA for Wednesday, July 14, 2004 (by email or a copy)? Or could you give me a site where I can get it? Is it true that a market order to cover a short position guarantees you execution but may take several minutes to fill (and therefore, the price may be much higher than the price at the time of the order, if 3,000 shares of AA are involved)?
