Congratulations to all you horses at the front of the pack....especially No.1 (Uncle23 with CBOU). I'm hoping to cross the finish line "before the cows come home"....that's Texas talk...for you folks that only speak English.
Occasionally I trade after-hours or before-hours. I do it if I think some piece of news is going to make a stock rocket at the open. It's pure computer matching of orders, and (at least with my broker) can only be done with limit orders. The only thing I've found that works is to put my limit order at exactly the ask (or maybe even a tad higher). Then it will usually either fill immediately or it's never going to (at that price). I swear sometimes all my order does is kick the ask price higher.
