In the fast-moving market, the time of input order could have possibly coincided with the time when the day's high/ low was reached and the price was never hit again. Therefore, the market order may not be executed successfully.
The price feed provided from trading system/ information vendors is the prices for all exchanges. In addition, orders placed on UTRADE are only directed to the three major exchanges ie. NYSE, NASDAQ and AMEX. In some rare circumstances, if Day's High/ Low is executed outside these three major exchanges, it may occur that the order price never reaches the Day's High / Low quoted, and hence the Market Order was not successfully executed.
Clients' orders will automatically lapse when they are not executed by the end of the trading day, and will have an 'expired' status. Clients will need to re-enter the order if they want to place it for the next trading day.
For UTRADE HK APP, Stop Limit Order and Market Order cannot be modified. Users have to cancel and place the order again should there be an amendment.
For UTRADE Web, when the amendment of the order is lower than the number of shares, clients will not lose their position in the queue. If the order is larger than the number of shares, clients will lose their position in the queue and is required to re-queue again.
