How long should it take for a broker to place your limit order?

post #1 of 3

For buying/sell with a limit order, how long should it take for a broker to make good on an order?


For example---> If I place a buy order for 16.55 and my price was hit for about 1 minute, and my order was not placed because of the short time at price didn't allow the order to go through.

How long should I be expected to wait? 2 minutes? 5?

Was your order AON (all or none)? Sometimes the market makers take a little longer to fill an AON order especially if the stock isn't very liquid. I stopped using AON a long time ago.

Generally speaking, if the ask price of the stock is equal to or lower than your limit buy order, it will get filled instantly. It's also possible that your order at the bid will get filled (especially if the stock is moving down), but buying at the ask is instantaneous.
