I was ready, placed an ordeer at Market for CBRL
when the price was $129 something.  Didn't fill.
Order stayed open while the price went up to $138.
Finally figured out how to cancel but the cancellation
is still pending.  Still says that at 10:21
The order was placed at 9:45

Was easy money, sold 50 at !53.90, ordered at 129 something
all it needed was to be executed.  Didn't make it.


EDIT:
Filled Buy 50 CBRL 136.98 10:54:15 08/24/15

Guess the cancel didn't work. Crap.

That sux! A market order should be executed almost immediately. There were extenuating circumstances at that time but that delay is inexcusable. Well, you're already up on it and a big day ahead to make some more.

I missed the big sell off yesterday morning. Looked at the market around 2 and thought I'd buy a few things I'd been watching. Didn't know they were much cheaper a few hours earlier. Got some WMT, TRV, and AFL and they are all up nicely pre-market.

I guess it's alright, they said all online brokers were
swamped and there were 1,200 stops put in place
when the market dropped so much.

Wish I could have gotten in more buys early but it was
stopped.  Vanguard VTI and VIG went from the 70's
down to low fifties and back in a few minutes.

I saw Aflac was down but we're already holding enough,
Walmart looks safe and Travelers is a good company I
just haven't kept up with much.

I got:

Filled Buy 50  WMT  64.9375  14:30:48 08/24/15
_____________________________________

Filled Buy 50  HOG  54.7197  14:29:31 08/24/15

along with the CBRL.  Wanted KO down another 50
cents but I'm not going to get it.
